Rangers sink Marlins on Cruz's birthday, 15-5

Nelson Cruz homered and had six RBIs on his 31st birthday, Adrian Beltre drove in four runs with three hits and Alexi Ogando had a career-high eight strikeouts in the Texas Rangers' 15-5 victory over the Florida Marlins on Friday night.
Ogando (8-3) limited the Marlins to five hits and two runs over
6 2-3 innings. The right-hander had lost his last three starts.
The Marlins didn't even have a baserunner until Hanley Ramirez
led off the fifth with a walk. They got their first hit on Greg
Dobbs' two-out single that inning, though they didn't score after
John Buck struck out.
Texas got its first seven runs in 3 2-3 innings off Anibal
Sanchez (6-2), who saw the end of his Marlins' season record of 14
consecutive starts without a loss.
