Rangers top Brewers, 4-1

Published On: May 08 2013 10:38:37 PM CDT
MILWAUKEE -

Derek Holland allowed one run over seven shaky innings and the Texas Rangers benefited from two Milwaukee baserunning blunders to beat the Brewers 4-1 Wednesday night

Holland (3-2), who struck out six and walked none, yielded 10 hits -- including two in the second, three in the third and three in the sixth.

He escaped with the help of some sloppy baserunning by the Brewers, who had a runner thrown out at the plate to end the third and another thrown out at third base in the sixth.

Tanner Scheppers pitched the eighth and Joe Nathan finished for his ninth save.

The Rangers remain the only team in either league without a blown save, 10 for 10.

Kyle Lohse (1-4) took the loss for Milwaukee.

Carlos Gomez went four for four to raise his National League leading batting average to .386.

Ian Kinsler and Mitch Moreland hit homers for Texas.
