Nick Martinez pitched more than 6 scoreless innings and Robinson Chirinos homered to lead the Rangers to a 2-1 victory over the Astros on Tuesday night in Arlington.
Donnie Murphy homered twice, Colby Lewis won for the first time in more than three weeks, and the Rangers beat the Athletics by a score of 14-8 on Monday night.
