Odor's homer in 12th lifts Rangers over Astros, 4-3

HOUSTON (AP) - Rougned Odor had three hits and three RBIs, including a solo homer in the 12th inning that lifted the Texas Rangers to a 4-3 victory over the Houston Astros on Monday night.

The Rangers, who have the best record in the American League at 86-59, improved to 14-3 against AL West rival Houston this season.

Odor launched his 31st homer over the short fence in right field off James Hoyt (1-1) to put Texas on top with no outs in the 12th.

Odor, who finished a triple shy of the cycle, has six home runs, six doubles and 19 RBIs in 16 games against Houston this season.

Keone Kela (5-1) allowed one hit in two scoreless innings for the win and Jake Diekman pitched a perfect 12th for his fourth save.
