TORONTO (AP) - Melky Cabrera hit a tiebreaking homer in the seventh inning, and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Texas Rangers 9-6 on Sunday.

Cabrera drove in three runs and finished 3 for 5, his 13th multi-hit effort in the past 28 games, as the Blue Jays won their first series since sweeping a two-game set against Milwaukee on July 1-2. He also made a great catch on a sinking liner by Adam Rosales in the sixth, keeping runners at first and second.

Cabrera's homer came on the third pitch he saw from right-hander Neftali Feliz (0-1), handing slumping Texas its 13th loss in 15 road games. The Rangers have won just four of their past 28 overall and are a major league-worst 39-59. It is the first time Texas is 20 games under .500 since finishing the 2003 season 71-91.
