Murphy, Rangers continue to roll

David Murphy, Vladimir Guerrero and Ian Kinsler hit long home runs for the AL West-leading Texas Rangers in an 11-7 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday night that stretched their winning streak to seven games.
In what might have been their last home game before clinching
the division title, the Rangers built an 8-2 lead in the fourth on
Murphy's three-run homer. The 426-foot blast into the second deck
of seats in right by Murphy chased Armando Galarraga (4-6), who had
already allowed Guerrero's 449-foot homer deep into the visitors
bullpen in left-center to start the second.
Colby Lewis (11-12) went six innings to win his second straight
start after needing 10 chances to finally get his 10th victory.
