Adrian Beltre hit a two-run homer and Michael Young added a three-run double in the fifth inning, lifting the Texas Rangers to a 7-4 win over the visiting Cleveland Indians on Thursday night.
 
Texas leads Los Angeles by 3 1/2 games for the lead in the American League West.
 
The Rangers took nine of 10 from the Indians and outscored Cleveland 68-32 in the season series. The Rangers outscored the Indians 26-9 in their three-game home sweep.
 
Alexi Ogando (13-8), who worked out of a bases-loaded, one-out jam in the second, pitched six shutout innings. He retired 12 straight batters at one point.

Fausto Carmona (6-15) allowed six runs in six innings for the Indians, who fell three games under .500 for the first time this season.
