Feldman wins 6th straight, Rangers beat Royals 4-2

Josh Hamilton drove in two runs, Scott Feldman won his sixth straight decision and the Texas Rangers defeated the Kansas City Royals 4-2 on Saturday night.

Feldman (6-6) became the first pitcher in 29 years to win six consecutive decisions after starting the season 0-6. Doyle Alexander did it in 1983 with the New York Yankees and Toronto Blue Jays.

Hamilton, who leads the majors with 90 RBIs, hit an opposite-field single in the third inning to score Ian Kinsler and Elvis Andrus. Kinsler singled with one out and went to third on Andrus' double.

Mike Olt, called up Thursday from Double-A, added two RBIs for the AL West leaders.

With regular closer Joe Nathan unavailable, Alexi Ogando worked around two singles in the ninth to earn his third save.
