Cleveland, OH -- Highly touted prospect Jurickson Profar homered in his first major league at-bat, and the Texas Rangers beat the Cleveland Indians, 8-3, in the rubber match of a three-game series at Progressive Field.

The scrawny Profar, the first player born in 1993 to appear in the majors, began his big league career by crushing Zach McAllister's 2-1 fastball about 15 rows into the right-field seats. His leadoff blast opened the scoring and ignited a four-run third inning that also included David Murphy's two-run single.
