Teen Profar HRs 1st time up, Texas beats Indians

Jurickson Profar made quite a debut at age 19, homering in his first major league at-bat as the Texas Rangers beat the Cleveland Indians 8-3 Sunday.

Profar opened the third inning with a drive over the right-field wall against Zach McAllister (5-6).

Josh Hamilton, Adrian Beltre and David Murphy all hit solo home runs in the Texas fifth.

Derek Holland (10-6) gave up two runs over seven innings as the AL West-leading Rangers took two of three in the series. Texas matched its best record through 133 games, having also gone 79-54 in 1999.

Cleveland dropped to 6-29 since July 27.

Profar went 2 for 4 as a late substitute when second baseman Ian Kinsler was scratched with a stiff back.
