LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jonah Heim and Nate Lowe had two-run homers among their three hits apiece, Kolby Allard pitched five scoreless innings of five-hit ball and the Texas Rangers emphatically snapped their 16-game road losing streak with a 12-1 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers. Jason Martin hit his first major league homer and Willie Calhoun had an RBI triple for the Rangers, who hadn’t won away from Arlington since May 6 in a skid that spanned six ballparks and matched the longest road losing streak in franchise history. AJ Pollock homered for the Dodgers, whose five-game winning streak ended with just their second loss in 10 games.
