ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Prince Fielder and Adrian Beltre hit back-to-back home runs, and the Texas Rangers beat the San Diego Padres 4-3 on Friday night, snapping a five-game skid.
Fielder led off the fourth inning against Ian Kennedy (4-9) with his 14th home run. Beltre followed with his seventh to help the Rangers end an eight-game home losing streak, one shy of the franchise record.
Fielder also drove in a first-inning run with a sacrifice fly to third baseman Will Middlebrooks in short left-center field. When Middlebrooks hesitated, Delino DeShields raced home.
Wandy Rodriguez (6-4) won in Arlington for the first time in 9 years. In 5 1-3 innings, he allowed three hits and one run on Melvin Upton Jr.'s leadoff homer in the sixth.
Shawn Tolleson pitched a scoreless ninth inning for his 13th save.
The Padres extended their longest losing streak this season to six games.
