Rangers 3, Athletics 0
OAKLAND, Calif. — Martin Perez pitched his second straight shutout to extend his scoreless innings streak to 26, and the Rangers wrapped up a three-game sweep. "He's been the glue," manager Ron Washington said. "He's held it together. He's the one guy in that rotation who's been in it from last year who hasn't had a blip yet." The Rangers have been without Yu Darvish, Matt Harrison and Colby Lewis at times but are in first place thanks to some strong play from fill-ins and major improvement from Perez.
