MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Derek Holland allowed one run over seven shaky innings and the Texas Rangers benefited from two Milwaukee baserunning blunders to beat the Brewers 4-1 Wednesday night. Holland (3-2), who struck out six and walked none, yielded 10 hits -- including two in the second, three in the third and three in the sixth. He escaped with the help of some sloppy baserunning by the Brewers, who had a runner thrown out at the plate to end the third and another thrown out at third base in the sixth. Tanner Scheppers pitched the eighth and Joe Nathan finished for his ninth save. The Rangers remain the only team in either league without a blown save, 10 for 10. Ian Kinsler and Mitch Moreland each homered for Texas. The Rangers scored one run in each of the first three innings off Kyle Lohse (1-4), who allowed four runs on nine hits in 6 1-3 innings. Lohse escaped a 33-pitch first inning, allowing just one run, despite three consecutive singles to open and a one-out walk. He escaped a bases-loaded jam by striking out Geovany Soto and David Murphy to end the inning. Kinsler's seventh homer, a two-out shot to left field, made it 2-0 in the second. Moreland increased the lead in the third with another solo homer, his sixth. Milwaukee cut the lead to 3-1 in the sixth, but managed just one run despite two triples and a double. Ryan Braun, who extended his hitting streak to 10 games with a third-inning single, led off with a triple and Aramis Ramirez followed with an RBI double to right-center. Ramirez was out trying to advance to third when the ball squirted away from catcher Soto, who recovered in time to make the throw. Carlos Gomez tripled with two outs when right fielder Nelson Cruz misplayed a fly ball, but struggling Rickie Weeks grounded out to end the inning. The Rangers added a run in the seventh on Moreland's RBI single. Texas center fielder Leonys Martin prevented another run in the third, throwing out Jean Segura at home to end the inning. Segura tried to score from second on Ramirez's single. Gomez also had two singles and a double, extending his hitting streak to a career-high 14 games and raising his league-leading average to .386.
