ARLINGTON, Texas  — Jonathan Villar had two home runs and a career-high five RBIs and Matt Garza beat his former team as the Milwaukee Brewers defeated the Texas Rangers 8-3 on Monday night, September 26th.

The loss dropped American League West-champion Texas one-half game behind the Boston Red Sox in the race for the league’s best record. The Cleveland Indians pulled within one-half game of the Rangers.

Villar, the major leagues’ stolen base leader with 59, hit a two-run homer in the fifth inning and a three-run shot in the seventh. He also doubled.

Garza (6-8) allowed three runs and six hits in six innings. He spent the second half of the 2013 season with Texas as a rental acquisition from the Chicago Cubs, going 4-5 with a 4.38 ERA. It was Garza’s first appearance against Texas since 2010.

Rangers starter Martin Perez (10-11) was looking to set a career high for wins in a season. He gave up a season-high eight earned runs and nine hits in 6 2/3 innings. His home record this season fell to 8-3.
