Neftali Feliz worked out of a two-on, no-out jam in the ninth to record his 26th save.
David Murphy added two hits including an RBI single for the Rangers, who have won three of four.
Jeremy Hellickson (11-10) allowed six hits and a pair of runs over six full frames for the Rays, who have lost two straight after a three-game win streak.
