BALTIMORE (AP) – Derek Holland allowed five hits over six innings, Adrian Beltre and Ian Kinsler homered, and the Texas Rangers beat the Baltimore Orioles 3-0 Sunday to win their third consecutive series.

The Rangers took two of three from Baltimore and improved to 8-1, matching the best start in franchise history (1989). The only other seasons in which Texas opened with more than two successive series wins were 1989 (five straight) and 1993 (four).

Holland (2-0) struck out six, walked two and hit a batter with a pitch. The left-hander had only one perfect inning, but he never failed to get the outs he needed.

Neftali Feliz, the third Texas reliever, got four outs for his third save.
