Odor homers again, Rangers beat Astros to pad AL West lead
 
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Rougned Odor homered for the third straight game in a seven-run fourth inning, Carlos Gomez had two hits in his first game against his former team and the Texas Rangers held on for a 10-8 victory over the Houston Astros on Friday night.
 
The Rangers nearly squandered a seven-run lead but won their sixth straight to push their AL West advantage to 9 1/2 games over the second-place Astros. Houston lost the first of 13 straight games against division leaders to start September, six of those against Texas.
 
Odor's team-leading 28th home run was one of three in the fourth inning against Doug Fister (12-10), who came out after Jonathan Lucroy followed Odor's shot to right with a line drive just over the 14-foot wall in left for a 9-2 lead.
