dueling the Rays' Jake Odorizzi in the victory. Adrian Beltre drove in both runs for the Rangers. Odorizzi spread seven hits, struck out seven and gave up only one run in his 6 2/3 innings of work.

This time, normally dependable receiver Kevin Jepson gave up the go-ahead run, walking two batters before Beltre knocked in the winning run.
