ARLINGTON, Texas, June 29 (UPI) -- Devin Mesoraco blasted a long, two-run homer in the 11th inning Saturday, handing the Cincinnati Reds a 6-4 interleague win over Texas.

The Rangers' Kyle McClellan (0-1) hit Todd Frazier with a pitch to begin the 11th inning of a 4-4 tie game, and Mesoraco, after failing to lay down a bunt earlier in the at-bat, followed with a mammoth homer down the left-field line for the decisive blow.

Shin-Soo Choo went 3-for-4 with a solo homer while Zack Cozart and Xavier Paul each added an RBI for Cincinnati, which evened its three-game interleague set.

J.J. Hoover (1-5) earned the victory after notching the final two outs of the 10th and Aroldis Chapman recorded his 20th save.

Nelson Cruz went 2-for-4 with an RBI for American League West-leading Texas.
