|Rangers Hit 5 Homers In Victory Over White Sox
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Ian Kinsler raced around the bases for a bizarre inside-the-park homer and Adam Rosales had a conventional two-run shot, helping the Texas Rangers beat the Chicago White Sox 11-5 on Friday night.
The AL West-leading Rangers (75-53) had five homers in all while winning for the 19th time in 23 games to move a season-high 22 games over .500. Jeff Baker and pinch hitter Mitch Moreland each had two-run shot, and Adrian Beltre belted a solo drive.
The White Sox were unable to overcome a shaky outing by ace Chris Sale, ending a season-high six-game winning streak. Sale (9-12) allowed eight runs and eight hits in seven innings.
