Moreland, Rios help Rangers beat Blue Jays 6-2

Mitch Moreland hit a tiebreaking homer in the seventh inning, Alex Rios had a two-run triple and the Texas Rangers avoided a three-game sweep with a 6-2 victory against the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday.

Making his second straight start at first base with Prince Fielder sidelined by a neck strain, Moreland hit a line drive just over the wall in left field off R.A. Dickey (4-4) to break a 2-all tie.

The Rangers had gone 23 innings without an extra-base hit when Rios drove one off the right-center wall in the fourth.

Juan Francisco and Edwin Encarnacion homered for the Blue Jays, who had won a franchise-record six straight in Texas, including a four-game sweep in their only visit last year.
