michaelyoung post Young, Rangers rout Tigers to win sixth straight

Michael Young finished with three hits, three runs batted in and three runs scored, as Texas opened the floodgates late in an 11-4 rout of Detroit in the first contest of a brief two-game set at Rangers Ballpark.

Elvis Andrus had two hits and scored twice, David Murphy homered as part of a three-hit, two-RBI attack, and the Rangers pounded out 14 hits in their sixth straight victory. Texas has a sizeable nine-game advantage over Oakland in the American League West and appears to playing its best baseball at the right time.

That was especially true of Dustin Nippert (4-4), who pitched 4 1/3 scoreless frames while surrendering three hits and one walk with three strikeouts. He came into the game in the fifth for Derek Holland, who lasted just four frames. Get more Texas Rangers news on
