Ogando outstanding, Rangers shutout Tigers

Alexi Ogando outpitched Justin Verlander before leaving with a finger problem and the Texas Rangers beat the Detroit Tigers 2-0 Monday to match the best 10-game start in team history.
Michael Young and Mitch Moreland hit RBI doubles in the seventh
inning as the AL champions improved to 9-1, the top record in the
majors. Texas equaled the start of its 1989 club.
Ogando (2-0) gave up just two hits, walked one and struck four
over seven innings in his second start in the majors. The converted
reliever had his outing cut short by fluid under a callus on his
right index finger - he pitched six scoreless innings last week
with a developing blister on the same finger.
Verlander (1-1) lost despite pitching a six-hitter.
