CLEVELAND -- Pinch-hitter Adrian Beltre hit a three-run homer in the 11th inning to help lift the Texas Rangers to a 5-2 win over the Cleveland Indians on Saturday night.

Beltre didn't start for the fourth straight game due to a tender hamstring, but hit a 1-0 pitch from Joe Smith (1-1) over the center-field wall for his fifth homer, snapping Texas' three-game losing streak.

Alexi Ogando (1-0) pitched two scoreless innings and Joe Nathan worked the 11th for his seventh save in eight tries.

Asdrubal Cabrera had four hits for Cleveland, which had a three-game winning streak stopped.
