Martin Perez was one pitch away from a complete game shutout before giving up a home run to Chris Carter, but managed a complete game nonetheless, as Texas won 6-1. Texas has now won 7 straight and 11 of their last 12 to remain a full game up in the AL West over the Oakland Athletics.
Alex Rios was once again a huge part of the win, and we can only hope that he'll remain this effective going forward. Yu Darvish pitches tomorrow in the final game of the series in Houston, and will look to give the Rangers an 8-game winning streak.
These Texas Rangers are having a lot of fun. 18 games above .500 for the first time this season, they have every reason to enjoy it.
