Moreland, Rangers avoid sweep with 5-1 win over Indians

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Mitch Moreland had a two-run homer after an earlier hit off the top of the wall, Prince Fielder had two more singles and the Texas Rangers beat the Cleveland Indians 5-1 Sunday to avoid a three-game sweep.

After Moreland lined a double off the top of the right-field wall in the second that produced the first Texas run, his drive estimated at 407 feet in the sixth just cleared the wall in center and made it 4-1.

Nick Martinez (3-0) allowed one run in five innings for his first victory in six starts since winning his first two games this season. The right-hander struck out six, but walked five (one intentionally) and hit a batter.

Carlos Carrasco (4-4) struck out nine in eight innings, the first complete game for a Cleveland pitcher this season. He threw 77 of his 114 pitches for strikes.
