ARLINGTON, Texas  --  Lance Berkman hit a tiebreaking, two-run homer in the seventh inning and the Texas Rangers beat Cleveland 6-3 Monday night to hand the Indians their eighth straight loss.

Berkman's homer was his first since May 24 and extended Cleveland's road losing streak to 12, its longest since a 16-game skid that carried over from 2009 into the second away game of 2010.

Robbie Ross (3-1) got the win after striking out the side following a leadoff walk in the seventh. Joe Nathan pitched a perfect ninth for his 20th save.

Scott Kazmir (3-4) ended up with the loss even though he was in the dugout when Berkman homered off Nick Hagadone.

Carlos Santana had a three-run double in the third inning, but the Indians didn't get another hit.
