ARLINGTON, Texas -- Jurickson Profar sprinted around the bases with a big smile after putting the Rangers ahead for good. Maybe the only person happier than the 20-year-old rookie was his veteran manager. Profar hit a tiebreaking home run with two outs in the eighth inning Sunday, lifting the Texas Rangers over the Kansas City Royals 3-1 on Sunday. The 20-year-old Profar connected off J.C. Gutierrez (0-1) for his second homer, a solo shot that put Texas ahead 2-1. Manager Ron Washington was the first to greet Profar in the dugout. With a big grin of his own, Washington snagged the batting helmet off Profars head before he was mobbed by teammates. "What I get a kick out of is hes not afraid of baseball," Washington said. "Opportunities like today are what that young kid lives for. No one in the ballpark expected that. But he gave us a lift right there. He rose to the occasion." Profar was recalled from the minors to replace injured second baseman Ian Kinsler on May 19. The top prospect is hitting .324 and hit his second homer in 10 games this season. "I was just trying to get on base," Profar said. "I guess I did a little better there." David Murphy added an RBI single later in the inning to make it 3-1. Tanner Scheppers (4-0) got two outs in the eighth and Joe Nathan pitched a perfect ninth for his 17th save in 18 chances. Yu Darvish allowed three hits, walked two and struck out six as he left with a 1-0 lead after seven innings. After the game, Darvish said he felt fatigued after throwing 99 pitches. Washington added Darvish told him he was out of gas and didnt want the Japanese ace to fight through another inning. Neal Cotts replaced Darvish to start the eighth. "Any time I throw more than seven innings, I always feel fatigued after that," Darvish said through an interpreter. "So it was nothing special today." Alex Gordon doubled in the Kansas City eighth and scored on a grounder to make it 1-all. The Rangers only had three singles coming into the eighth. Gutierrez retired the first two batters of the inning before Profar came up to the plate. He lined a 1-2 pitch into the seats in right. Elvis Andrus was on deck and joked about Profars speed rounding the bases. "That was really quick," Andrus said. "Hes going to hit plenty of homers in his career so he needs to work on that. Hes fun to watch." Rangers centre fielder Craig Gentry threw out Billy Butler at home trying to score early as first-place Texas won for the third time in four games. The Rangers were without All-Star third baseman Adrian Beltre, who didnt play because of a strained left hamstring. Washington said Beltre may be back in the lineup for Tuesday nights game against the Boston Red Sox. Andrus wasnt in the original starting lineup as hes been hampered by a sore back in the past week. The shortstop, however, said he felt good when he woke up and convinced Washington he was ready to play. Kansas City starter Ervin Santana allowed an unearned run and three singles in seven innings. The right-hander had lost his past four starts coming in. The Royals havent scored more than four runs in a game since May 21 and have lost 10 of 12. Kansas City, which brought on Hall of Famer George Brett as interim hitting coach Thursday, scored only seven runs in dropping two of three to Texas. "We were right there," Butler said. "We were one pitch away, one hit away at every point in that game. Its very frustrating." Santana didnt allow a hit until Nelson Cruz singled with one out in the fourth. Gordon, who snapped an 0-for-14 rut earlier in the game, led off the eighth with a broken-bat double against Cotts. Alcides Escobar had a sacrifice bunt that moved Gordon to third. Eric Hosmer hit a chopper to Jeff Baker, who played third base in place of Beltre. Bakers throw home was wild and Gordon scored easily to tie the game. With the bases loaded and no outs in the second, Jeff Francoeur hit a liner to centre and Gentry made a running catch. Gentry made a perfect throw to home plate and catcher Geovany Soto just got the tag on a sliding Butler. NOTES: Rangers RHP Alexi Ogando will come off the disabled list and is scheduled to start Wednesday at Boston. Ogando (4-2) has been sidelined since May 16 with right biceps tendinitis. ... Kansas City OF David Lough did not play a day after getting hit on the right wrist by a pitch with the bases loaded in the 10th inning Saturday. X-rays on the wrist were negative. ... Brett and Rangers executive Nolan Ryan exchanged lineup cards before the game with umpire Dale Scott, who was behind home plate for the pairs final game on Oct. 3, 1993. Brett went 1 for 4 that day, Ryan was injured and didnt play. Devontae Booker Jersey .

Perhaps as a hitter, too. Minor homered for his first two RBIs in the majors and struck out 10 as the Braves posted their second win in a matter of hours, beating the New York Mets 6-0 Saturday for their eighth straight victory. "Hes been fun to watch," Atlanta manager Fredi Gonzalez said, later adding, "hes a good athlete." Earlier, Dan Uggla hit a go-ahead single in the 10th inning and the Braves won 7-5 in the resumption of a game suspended because of rain Friday night after eight innings with the score tied. Minor (6-2) then pitched 7 1-3 innings of three-hit ball, sending the Mets to their fifth loss in a row overall and eighth straight at Citi Field. Minor was hardly a force at the plate coming in -- he was a paltry 8 for 108 (.074) in four seasons, striking out in exactly half of those at-bats. He perked up for his first two-hit game in the majors. "Streaky," he kidded. In the third inning, Minor singled to become the Braves first baserunner of the game, and a bat boy brought him a warmup jacket on a blustery, cool evening. The next time up in the fifth, with a light rain, the 25-year-old lefty never had time to get chilly. Despite gusts that kept knocking down fly balls, Minor hit a two-run drive inside the left field foul pole off Dillon Gee (2-6) that broke a scoreless tie. "Got to have power, like me," Minor said with a grin. Minor homered for the first time since his senior year of high school, and it touched off a five-run burst. Minor connected after a two-out single by Chris Johnson, and they smiled the whole way from home plate back to the bench. Minors teammates celebrated the shot, too, and big first baseman Freddie Freeman hugged the pitcher and playfully jumped up and down with him in the dugout. Catcher Brian McCann, however, reminded Minor that there was still work to do on the mound. "Didnt try to live in that moment of the home run," Minor said. The Braves got six straight hits in their surge, including doubles by Justin Upton and Andrelton Simmons and singles by Jason Heyward and Freeman. "All of a sudden, seemed I just got in the stretch and I just lost it," Gee said. "I got to keep looking forward, keep working hard. If I keep looking back on the past theres nothing good there right noww," he said.dddddddddddd There was a brief delay when Minor batted in the seventh because the wind whipped up the dirt and blew more than 150 hot dog wrappers and other pieces of debris all over the field. Stadium workers cleared the mess when the half-inning ended, shortly after Freemans second RBI single. There was a fireworks show after the game. The seats were nearly empty, with few bundled-up fans sticking around. The Braves and Mets took 42 minutes to complete the resumption, and there was a 36-minute break between the games. The suspended game picked up right where it left off, at the start of the ninth inning. There was no national anthem, fans were scattered in the stands and it was cloudy and windy with temperatures in the low 50s. After Upton grounded into an inning-ending double play with runners at the corners in the Atlanta ninth, the Braves won it in the 10th. Freeman, who homered Friday night before the rain came, drew a leadoff walk from Brandon Lyon (1-2) and took third on a double by McCann. Uggla, who hit a late home run the previous night at Citi Field, followed with his tiebreaking single. B.J. Upton later squeezed home pinch-runner Jordan Schafer. Anthony Varvaro (2-0) pitched a scoreless ninth. He worked the eighth a day earlier and gave up two runs that made it 5-all. Craig Kimbrel escaped a two-on, no-out jam in the 10th for his 15th save in 18 tries. The Braves previous suspended game was April 5, 1997, against the Cubs -- it was the second game ever played at Turner Field and was stopped because of rain in the seventh inning. Atlanta won the resumption the next day. The Mets lost in their first suspended game since Aug. 6, 1986, when the second game of a doubleheader against the Cubs was halted after the seventh for darkness -- Wrigley Field didnt have lights then. The Mets won the completion the next day. NOTES: The Braves pitched their fourth shutout of the season. The Mets have been blanked three times. ... Atlanta has won five straight at Citi Field. ... Ike Davis singled in the Mets 10th. Hed struck out in all four at-bats Friday night, leaving him in a 1-for-42 rut. He struck out as a pinch-hitter in the second game, and remains hitless in his last 26 tries with runners in scoring position. ... Braves RHP Julio Teheran (3-1, 3.99) starts Sunday night vs. RHP Shaun Marcum (0-5, 6.59). ... Heyward started in CF for the first time since last Aug. 1.
