TORONTO (AP) - Adrian Beltre hit a tiebreaking home run in the seventh inning, Nelson Cruz and David Murphy also connected and the Texas Rangers rallied from a four-run deficit to beat the Toronto Blue Jays 6-4 on Sunday.
One day after the Blue Jays beat Texas in 18 innings, Beltre hit an opposite-field shot to right off Neil Wagner for his 14th homer of the season. That helped the Rangers avoid a three-game sweep and their first four-game losing streak of the season.
Neal Cotts (2-0) worked one inning for the win and Joe Nathan finished for his 19th save in 20 chances.
Wagner (1-1) had pitched 7 2-3 scoreless innings since being promoted from Triple-A Buffalo on May 29.
