HOUSTON (AP) - Josh Hamilton tied a career high with five hits, including a tying single in the ninth inning and the go-ahead single in the 10th, to lift the Texas Rangers over the Houston Astros 5-4 Sunday for their season-high eighth straight victory.
Texas swept the three-game series from its state rivals, extending Houston's losing streak to four games.
Julio Borbon singled in the 10th before Casey Daigle (0-1) intentionally walked Vladimir Guerrero, bringing up Hamilton. He knocked a line drive to right field off lefty Gustavo Chacin to put the Rangers ahead.
Chris Ray (2-0) allowed one hit in a scoreless ninth and Neftali Feliz pitched a perfect 10th for his 19th save in 21 chances.
