Bullpen pitches out of trouble, Rangers beat Astros 4-3

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Relievers Sam Freeman and Shawn Tolleson pitched out of trouble and the Texas Rangers held off the Houston Astros 4-3 on Tuesday night.

Freeman relieved Yovani Gallardo (8-9) in the sixth inning, and allowed a single and a walk to load the bases with one out. Freeman then retired Luis Valbuena and Marwin Gonzalez.

Tolleson earned his 20th save, all since May 20, despite giving up a walk and Valbuena's second single before recording an out. Jason Castro and Jose Altuve struck out for the final two outs.

Texas erased a 2-1 deficit with three runs in the fifth against Dan Straily (0-1).

Houston's Carlos Gomez drove in two runs with a double and a homer.
