Rangers hit four homers to beat Indians 11-9

CLEVELAND (AP) - Rookie Julio Borbon homered twice and Marlon Byrd went 4 for 4, including a three-run homer in the seventh, to help the Texas Rangers beat the Cleveland Indians 11-9 on Wednesday in the first game of a doubleheader.

The two teams combined for six homers and 29 hits and scored half of the 20 runs after the sixth inning. David Murphy also homered for Texas, while Matt LaPorta and Travis Hafner homered for Cleveland.

Borbon now has three homers in 70 major league at-bats this season after hitting just nine in 1,091 career minor league at-bats.

Jensen Lewis (2-4) pitched 1 1-3 innings to take the loss.

The Indians had tied the game at 5 on rookie Michael Brantley's two-run bloop double off Rangers reliever Neftali Feliz (1-0) in the sixth.
