[1]ARLINGTON, Texas (AP)—Nick Tepesch pitched into the eighth inning in his major league debut, Lance Berkman had a key two-run single among three hits and the Texas Rangers beat the Tampa Bay Rays 6-1 Tuesday night.

Tepesch retired 12 straight batters before hesitating to pick up a slow roller from Kelly Johnson that went for a one-out single in the eighth. The 24-year-old right-hander left to a standing ovation after Desmond Jennings followed with his second double of the game.

Tepesch (1-0) allowed four hits and a run with three walks and five strikeouts.

Roberto Hernandez (0-2) gave up eight hits and six runs—five earned—in 6 2-3 innings.
