Kinsler homers twice, Rangers hold off Astros 3-2

Ian Kinsler homered twice for the first time in almost two years and Colby Lewis had another solid start to lead the Texas Rangers to a 3-2 win over the Houston Astros on Wednesday night.
Kinsler hit a leadoff homer and also went deep in his next
at-bat in the third inning to help Texas to an early 3-0 lead. It
was the eighth multi-home run game of his career and his first
since August 2009 against the Yankees.
Lewis (7-7) pitched six scoreless innings before giving up a
pair of runs in the seventh inning to cut the Rangers lead to one.
He allowed six hits and struck out six as the Rangers won their
eighth straight game in Houston.
Carlos Lee had a solo homer for the Astros, who have dropped
five straight and have the worst record in the majors at 28-53.
Neftali Feliz had a scoreless ninth for his 16th save.
Houston starter Brett Myers (3-7) allowed six hits and three
runs in seven innings.
