By  | 

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Willie Calhoun hit a tiebreaking three-run triple in the seventh inning, and the Texas Rangers beat the Detroit Tigers 9-4 on Sunday to finish a three-game sweep.

Calhoun pulled a 2-0 pitch from Nick Ramirez just inside the right-field line and into the corner. Calhoun later scored on a wild pitch.

José Cisnero (0-3) walked the first two batters of the seventh and was replaced by Ramirez with two outs.

Rafael Montero (1-0) closed with 2 1/3 scoreless innings for his first major league win since September 2017 with the New York Mets. Texas' four-game win streak is its longest since a six-game streak in late June.

The Tigers went 2-8 on a 10-game road trip.
