Francona, after being released from the hospital, has been advised to stay at home Tuesday after leaving Monday night's game with what the team called an "illness".
Bench coach Brad Mills will manage the team in Francona's absence. It isn't clear when Francona left. Elvis Andrus drove in four for Texas while Adrian Beltre had three RBI. "Our pitching kind of hindered us a little bit early in the game, but we came back and tried to keep it as close as we could". On a night where Carlos Carrasco gave up an uncharacteristic eight runs over just 3 1/3 innings, the bullpen held the Rangers to two hits in the final five innings, striking out nine and walking two. "This is the best win of the year". As T.J. Zuppe of The Athletic notes, Francona left Cleveland's June 13 game after experiencing lightheadedness.
"Once we got the (momentum) swing started, we kept it going, with the quality of our at-bats and how well the balls were hit", Mills said. NY snapped a two-game skid and won for only the third time in the past 13 games. Dan Otero entered but the barrage continued with Andrus' second home run of the night, a solo shot, to make it 9-2 in the top of the fourth.
Chris Herrmann led off the first inning with a homer and Greinke (9-4) allowed a run and three hits with five strikeouts.

"That's one game that absolutely doesn't feel good", Rangers manager Jeff Banister said. Carrasco was charged with eight runs in just 3 1/3 innings, giving up three homers to Rangers hitters. The Nats have seen a lot of late leads get away this season and hope the 35-year-old reliever can boost them.
While the crowd cheered Napoli, Rangers catcher Jonathan Lucroy was booed every time he came to the plate.
He never played a game with New York's major-league club, though, as the Yankees included him in a December 2009 three-way trade that sent Jackson to the Detroit Tigers.
