Rangers Beat Tigers, 5-3, Extend Winning Streak To 10 Games
20 May 2017, 02:30 | Pamela Mathis
Even though the second-place Rangers have baseball's longest winning streak since Boston won 11 straight late previous year, they have made up just two games on the AL West-leading Astros, who have a 6½ game cushion. Los Angeles has won four straight, and reigning AL MVP Mike Trout has homered five times in six games. Texas is 22-20 overall and 6-12 on the road.
The Rangers take the longest winning streak in the majors into a series at Detroit. You play who they tell you to. The Rangers' 8-0 homestand marked just the second time in club history it had gone unbeaten in a stretch of eight or more home games.
Verlander will start Saturday night against Texas with a 3-3 record and 4.47 ERA over his first eight starts.
The Rangers have lost some key players over the last few weeks, but it just seems to make them stronger. He lasted five innings and allowed five runs, seven hits, including both home runs on 2-0 pitches, and two walks.
J.D. Martinez hit a three-run shot in the third for the Tigers, who ended a streak of eight straight quality starts by Bundy (5-2) to start the season.
Martinez was supported with early runs as Texas scored twice in the third inning and added another run in the fourth.
Norris gave up another home run in the sixth, this one of the two-run variety, to Rangers third baseman Joey Gallo (115 miles per hour off the bat) on pitch number 102. Texas is putting up 4.73 runs per game while allowing 4.20.
Twins 4, Royals 3, 10 inn.: Kennys Vargas launched a tying, two-run homer in the ninth inning, and Jorge Polanco hit a sacrifice fly in the 10th for Minnesota. The win improves the Giants to 7-15 away from San Francisco. After getting recalled after Thursday afternoon's win over the Orioles, the young right-hander was optioned back after Friday night's loss to the Rangers.

Brewers 6, Cubs 3: Jett Bandy and Domingo Santana hit two-run singles to lead Milwaukee over Chicago. The blast of Napoli's bat was his ninth of the year as the Party At Napoli's continues to rev up.
Norris fell behind Napoli in the fourth and he sent a 2-0 pitch over the wall in left field for his ninth home run. Detroit's regular catcher, James McCann, is hitting home runs but little else.
Astros outfielder Norichika Aoki was 0-for-3.
Detroit shaved its deficit to 3-1 on an RBI single to right by Andrew Romine with the bases loaded and two outs in the fourth.
Martinez and the Rangers were able to wiggle out of the inning without further damage as Jose Iglesias grouned out to Ryan Rua at first base.
"So we really just needed an arm to cover for us", Ausmus said.
The home run had to be especially gratifying for Gallo as he came into tonight's contest just 4-for-28 (.143) during the current winning streak.
According to MLB, Gallo's home run the hardest-hit in their Statcast era by a left-handed batter against a left-handed hitter. He struck out Alex Avila with runners on the corners and two outs after shortstop Elvis Andrus' throwing error allowed the Tigers to pull within two runs. Matt Bush earned his fifth save in six chances but it didn't come easy.
