ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Michael Young had three hits and drove in four runs playing only half the game and the Texas Rangers extended the majors' longest winning streak this season to 10 in a row with a 13-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday night.
It's only the second time Texas has won at least 10 consecutive games. The team record of 14 in a row came in 1991.
Pittsburgh has lost 20 of its last 25 games overall, including 13 consecutive road losses.
Rookie reliever Alexi Ogando (3-0) pitched three scoreless innings and has won in all three of his major league appearances.
Young had the first of five consecutive singles for Texas that chased Pirates starter Paul Maholm (4-6) without recording an out in the second.
