|Hamilton, Moreland Lead Rangers Over White Sox
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Josh Hamilton hit a tiebreaking home run in the sixth inning, Mitch Moreland added two homers, a three-run shot in the fourth and a two-run shot in the sixth, and the Texas Rangers beat the Chicago White Sox 7-4 on Friday night.
Moreland tied a career-high with five RBIs for the Rangers, who rallied for their 10th win in 12 games despite another shaky performance from starter Matt Harrison.
Rangers reliever Yoshinori Tateyama (2-0) pitched 2 2-3 scoreless innings for the victory and Neftali Feliz pitched a scoreless ninth for his 25th save in 31 chances.
The White Sox have lost three of four and are five games behind AL Central-leading Detroit.
Jake Peavy (5-6) allowed seven runs and six hits in six innings. He is 0-4 in his last six outings at home.
