124890516 Murphy & Hamilton Power Rangers Over Cleveland

ARLINGTON (AP) – David Murphy had a pair of solo home runs among his four hits and Josh Hamilton put the AL West-leading Texas Rangers ahead to stay with his 20th homer in a 10-4 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Tuesday night.

Murphy already had both of his homers, his 10th and 11th of the season, before Hamilton hit a scorching liner off Justin Masterson (11-10) into the right-center field seats by the Texas bullpen for a 4-2 lead in the fifth.

Adrian Beltre extended his hitting streak to 17 games, matching a career high, when he led off the seventh with a 411-foot blast.

Matt Harrison (12-9) gave up three runs on seven hits while pitching into the sixth inning in his first start in nine days. The left-hander struck out four and walked one.
