Beltre, Rodriguez carry Rangers to 2-1 win over Rays

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Adrian Beltre homered and drove in two runs, and Wandy Rodriguez gave the Texas Rangers a record-setting pitching performance Sunday in a 2-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays.

Beltre's tiebreaking single off Kevin Jepsen (0-2) came in the eighth inning after a couple of walks.

Keone Kela (3-1) got the win after Rodriguez established a franchise mark for consecutive batters retired.

The veteran lefty set down the first 15 Rays before Tim Beckham led off the Tampa Bay sixth with a line-drive single. Following the 19 straight hitters Rodriguez retired in his previous start, he broke the team record of 31 in a row set by Ken Hill in 1996.

There was some doubt about whether Rodriguez could continue to pitch when he walked off the mound in the third favoring his left leg. But he stayed in the game after a few warmup pitches.
