MLB: Texas 8, Cleveland 3

Sept. 2, 2012 at 4:15 PM   |   Comments

CLEVELAND, Sept. 2 (UPI) -- David Murphy went 3-for-4 with three RBI and supplied one of four homers belted by the Texas Rangers Sunday in their 8-3 win over Cleveland.

Murphy's two-run single highlighted a four-run third inning that put Texas ahead for good, and his solo shot in the fifth put the Rangers up 7-2.

Josh Hamilton and Adrian Beltre preceded Murphy's blast with back-to-back homers in the fifth and rookie Jurickson Profar also went deep in his first major-league game for American League West-leading Texas.

Derek Holland (10-6) yielded a pair of runs on seven hits over seven innings, walking two and striking out six as the Rangers took the rubber match of a three-game series.

Indians starter Zach McAllister (5-6) was pounded for seven runs on 11 hits through five full innings.

Carlos Santana knocked a two-homer for the Tribe.
