Tommy Hunter pitched seven scoreless innings, Josh Hamilton and Ian Kinsler homered, and the surging Texas Rangers beat the slumping Detroit Tigers 8-0 on Tuesday night.
The AL West-leading Rangers are 5-1 since the All-Star break.
Hunter became the first Ranger to start a season 7-0, pitching
only as a starter. He gave up three hits and two walks.
Detroit has lost a season-high seven straight, following a trend
during the Jim Leyland era. The Tigers have had at least a .500
record before the break in each of Leyland's five seasons and
haven't had a winning record once after it.
Armando Galarraga (3-3) gave up four runs and nine hits over 7
