ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Ian Kinsler might have put Game 5 out of reach with a ninth-inning home run to left field to give the Texas Rangers a 5-1 lead. Kinsler, who hit the homer off Tampa Bay Rays closer Rafael Soriano, has three RBIs in the game. Nelson Cruz led things off with a single.

Cliff Lee has completed eight innings with 10 strikeouts.
