Red-hot Rangers win 11th straight 3-1 over Seattle

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE (AP) _ Matt Harrison continued Texas' nearly perfect pitching, allowing just one run in 7 2/3 innings, Mitch Moreland hit a three-run homer and the Rangers won their 11th straight with a 3-1 win over the Seattle Mariners on Sunday. 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. And in the process of running the streak to 11, Harrison (8-7) and the Rangers swept the slumping Mariners and likely ended any thought of Seattle being contenders in the AL West this season. The Mariners have lost nine straight and are now 11½ games back. Seattle rookie Blake Beavan (1-1) minimized the damage all day _ except for Moreland's 12th homer in the second inning _ and suffered his first career loss.
