Rangers 1, Astros 0
ARLINGTON, Texas — Martin Perez pitched eight scoreless innings, Donnie Murphy had a sacrifice fly and the Rangers won the rubber match of the series. Perez benefited from four double-play grounders. Murphy's deep flyball to the left-centerfield gap in the sixth off Brett Oberholtzer sent home Josh Wilson. Murphy was in the game because shortstop Elvis Andrus got ejected at the end of the third inning after taking a third strike. Alexi Ogando converted his first save chance.
