HOUSTON (AP) - Alex Rios starred in his Texas debut, tying the game with an RBI triple in the eighth inning and scoring the go-ahead run to help the Rangers to a 5-4 comeback victory over the Houston Astros on Saturday night.
Elvis Andrus added a two-run homer as the Rangers extended their winning streak to a season-high six games.
Rios, who was acquired from the Chicago White Sox on Friday, tripled off reliever Lucas Harrell (5-13) in the eighth inning to tie it after a double by A.J. Pierzynski. Rios then slid feet first into home on a ball hit by Mitch Moreland, scoring when catcher Jason Castro dropped the ball for an error to put Texas up 5-4.
Jason Frasor (3-2) allowed one run in the seventh for the win.
