ARLINGTON, Texas -- Michael Choice hit a tiebreaking homer in the seventh inning after ace Yu Darvish blew a four-run lead and the Texas Rangers snapped the Cleveland's six-game winning streak with a 6-4 victory over the Indians on Friday night.
Choice, who had an RBI single in a four-run second, went the opposite way just over the right-field wall against Marc Rzepczynski (0-2) with two outs for a solo homer. The shot made a winner of Darvish (6-2) after the Japanese ace gave up a season-high nine hits in seven innings.
Texas reliever Jason Frasor got a nifty double play from Elvis Andrus in a scoreless eighth, and closer Joakim Soria had two strikeouts in the ninth for his 13th save.
