ARLINGTON, Texas, Aug. 15 (UPI) -- Ian Kinsler put Texas in front with a two-run single in the seventh inning Wednesday, bringing the Rangers a 5-4 decision over Milwaukee.

Texas bounced back after having an eight-game winning streak snapped by the Brewers on Tuesday and won for the 14th time in 16 games.

Juan Francisco drove in all the Milwaukee's runs with a pair of homers, one of them a three-run shot in the fourth inning that gave the Brewers a 4-2 lead.

That was still the score heading into the Texas seventh, but the first three Rangers drew walks in the inning -- two issued by Mike Gonzalez and another by John Axford.

Elvis Andrus came through with a one-out single to drive in one run and Kinsler followed with a single to left that brought home two more.

Jason Frasor (4-2) earned the win by working the top of the seventh and Joe Nathan retired the side in order in the ninth for his 36th save.

Axford (5-6) was charged with the loss.
