  • Texas Rangers' Adrian Beltre, right, is congratulated by Mitch Moreland (18) after hitting a home run off Oakland Athletics' Chris Resop in the tenth inning of a baseball game Tuesday, May 14, 2013, in Oakland, Calif.

Adrian Beltre hit a tiebreaking home run in the 10th inning, Mitch Moreland followed with his second of the game and the Texas Rangers held off the Oakland Athletics 6-5 Tuesday night.

Joe Nathan gave up a run in the bottom of the 10th but escaped a bases-loaded, one-out jam to snap Texas' four-game losing streak to Oakland.

Beltre sent a 3-0 pitch from Chris Resop (1-1) to center field with one out in the 10th for his ninth homer of the year. Moreland connected two batters later, giving him three of his nine home runs in the past two games. He also hit a two-run shot in the fourth.

Nathan needed 31 pitches to nail down his 12th save in as many chances this season.
