ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Scott Feldman won his fifth consecutive road start, Michael Young and Ivan Rodriguez each drove in two runs and the Texas Rangers avoided a three-game sweep by beating the Tampa Bay Rays 4-0 on Sunday.
Feldman (13-4) is the first Texas pitcher with victories in five straight starts away from home since Rick Helling accomplished the feat in 1998. The right-hander, 9-1 this season on the road, allowed four hits in seven scoreless innings.
Young extended his hitting streak to 11 games with a two-run single in the third that put Texas ahead 2-0.
