Adolis García hit the first grand slam by a Texas batter in almost two years and DJ Peters had a massive homer while driving in three runs as the rebuilding Rangers avoided being swept by Houston again, beating the AL West-leading Astros 13-2 in the series finale Sunday. García's 29th homer came during an eight-run outburst in the fifth, the highest-scoring inning for the last-place Rangers this season. Peters led it off with a towering 450-foot drive to straightaway center field that made it 6-2 and chased Houston starter Zack Greinke (11-5).
