Rangers pass Indians 2-1 after Beltre’s 9th-inning homer

Adrian Beltre had an extra reason to celebrate moving up the all-time home run list.

Beltre hit his 450th career homer, a solo drive in the ninth inning off Cody Allen that sent the Texas Rangers over the Cleveland Indians 2-1.

Beltre has been limited to 24 games because of a right calf injury, but has 13 RBIs in his last nine games, including a three-run homer Monday.

The Rangers hit four home runs while the Indians scored a season high in runs.

A night after striking out 17 times, Texas hitters fanned 16 times in the win.

He has hit 11 home runs this season and connected in six of his last nine games.

Mike Clevinger held the Rangers to one run and two hits, striking out a career-high nine in six innings.

Tyson Ross, making his third start of the season for Texas, also gave up one run and two hits in six innings.

Elvis Andrus was hitless in four at-bats, marking only the second time in 33 career games at Progressive Field that he hasn’t gotten a hit.

Indians: OF Austin Jackson (strained left quad) was placed on the 10-day disabled list and is expected to miss three to four weeks.
