Texas Rangers Defeat the Seattle Mariners to Extend League Leading 11 Game Win Streak

The Rangers pitching keeps improving as Matt Harrison allowed just one run in 7 2/3rd innings as the Rangers won their 11th straight with a 3-1 win over the Seattle Mariners.

Harrison wasn’t the Ranger to ruin this near perfect pitching streak the Rangers have had. The Ranger pitchers have held their opponent to 2 runs over these last 5 games, including 3 shut outs.

Harrison was 1 out short of going 8 innings. Harrison gave up 1 run on 5 hits during the game. He was also able to drop his ERA to 2.91 on the year and improve to 8-7.

Mark Lowe relieved Harrison in the 8th to get the final out of the inning. Neftali Feliz came in and got his 20th save of the season going 3-up3-down with the Mariners.

Mitch Moreland scored the lone Ranger runs of the game on a big 3-run homer in the 2nd inning.

There was a scary moment in the 7th inning when Mariner’s pitcher Blake Beaven threw a pitch that struck Ian Kinsler in the helmet. Kinsler stayed on the ground for a few moments before Ron Washington and a trainer checked him out. He eventually rose and made it to 1st. However, he did end his 12 game hit streak in the game.

The Rangers’ win streak is the longest in baseball since Philadelphia’s 11-game streak last September and tied for second-best in team history.

If the Rangers can sweep the upcoming series with the Angels, they will tie the franchises all time win streak record of 14 set back in 1991.
