Texas Rangers post third straight shutout

5-09-08 -- Scott Feldman and three relievers combined for Texas’ third consecutive shutout and Brandon Boggs drove in three runs to help the Rangers beat the Oakland Athletics 4-0 on Friday night.

Boggs recovered from an early hard crash into the wall to go 3-for-4 with a homer as Texas ended the A’s four-game winning streak.

Feldman (1-1) pitched six innings, stretching Texas’ scoreless streak to 28 consecutive innings. Jamey Wright then tossed a perfect seventh to make it 29, the second-longest streak in franchise history, before Joaquin Benoit and C.J. Wilson—the normal eighth- and ninth-inning guys—finished it off.
