Hamilton homers, Perez wins as Rangers edge Giants 2-1

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Josh Hamilton hit a two-run homer and Martin Perez allowed only two hits to earn his first win in his comeback from Tommy John surgery as the Texas Rangers edged the San Francisco Giants 2-1 on Sunday.

Perez (1-2) threw 8 1-3 innings, leaving after allowing a one-out, ninth-inning double to Angel Pagan. Sam Dyson earned his first career save, getting a game-ending double play after allowing a bases-loaded, RBI single to Buster Posey.

In Perez's previous start last Monday, he failed to get through the second inning against the New York Yankees and allowed eight earned runs in a 21-5 loss.
