SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Mauricio Dubon broke a seventh-inning tie with a two-out, pinch-hit single, Alex Wood won for the fourth time in five starts and the San Francisco Giants beat the Texas Rangers 3-1. Brandon Belt hit his eighth home run and Mike Yastrzemski doubled for San Francisco. The Giants are tied with idle St. Louis for the best record in the National League at 21-14. Wood had seven strikeouts and allowed one run in seven innings, lowering his ERA to 1.80. The lefty got double plays in the fifth and seventh innings and fanned Adolis Garcia and Joey Gallo with two on and one out in the sixth.
