Rangers beat Cardinals 2-1, sweep 3-game series

By R.B. FALLSTROM

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Ian Kinsler singled in the tiebreaking run in the seventh inning after the Rangers knocked 10-game winner Adam Wainwright out of the game, and Texas completed a soggy 3-game sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals with a 2-1 victory Sunday night.

The finale of Texas' first visit to Busch Stadium since losing Games 6 and 7 of the 2011 World Series, and first time ever in the regular season, was delayed 2 hours and 59 minutes by heavy rain with less than half of a near-capacity crowd sticking around.

Rookie Nick Tepesch had a resurgent outing for Texas, allowing a run on four hits in 5 2-3 innings after surrendering 11 runs in 8 2-3 innings the previous two outings. Kinsler and David Murphy had two hits apiece for the Rangers.
