ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Scooter Gennett homered twice, Marco Estrada worked six solid innings and the Milwaukee Brewers beat Texas 5-1 on Tuesday night, ending the Rangers' eight-game winning streak.
Khris Davis also homered for the Brewers. His solo shot in the seventh ricocheted high off the left-field pole and chased Alexi Ogando (5-4).
Gennett, a 23-year-old rookie second baseman listed at 157 pounds and playing only his 26th major league game, led off the third pulling a ball into the second deck of seats in right field.
Then in the fifth, the Brewers' No. 9 batter hit a two-run homer that landed in the seats under that for a 3-1 lead.
Estrada (5-4) allowed one run and four hits against AL West-leading Texas, which was coming off its first 9-1 trip in team history.
