Kinsler's home run sends Rangers past Astros 7-2

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Ian Kinsler ended a career-long 32-game homerless drought with a tiebreaking shot and the Texas Rangers quickly rebounded from their first loss in two weeks with a 7-2 victory over the Houston Astros on Saturday.

Rangers slugger Josh Hamilton extended his hitting streak to 20 games with a single in the sixth inning.

Kinsler's three-run homer off Josh Banks (0-1) in the fourth snapped a 2-all tie. It was only his second homer of the season and first since May 18, the day after manager Ron Washington moved Kinsler to the No. 3 spot in the batting order and dropped Hamilton to fifth.
