HOUSTON (AP) - Adrian Beltre, Nelson Cruz and Lance Berkman all homered to back up another solid outing by Yu Darvish, and the Texas Rangers held on for an 8-7 win over the Houston Astros on Saturday night.
Darvish (6-1) yielded three hits and three runs in seven innings. In his previous outing against the Astros, he came within one out of pitching a perfect game at Houston on April 2.
Houston led 3-1 before it was done in by its bullpen during a six-run sixth inning by the Rangers. Cruz, who also homered on Friday night, got things going with his two-run homer off reliever Philip Humber (0-8) that tied it. Pinch-hitter David Murphy put the Rangers on top with an RBI double.
