Wandy Rodriguez helps Rangers to 7-1 win over Astros

HOUSTON (AP) -- Kyle Blanks had three hits, including a homer, and Carlos Peguero added a two-run shot to back up a solid start by Wandy Rodriguez as the Texas Rangers beat the Houston Astros 7-1 on Tuesday night to win consecutive games for the first time this season.
 
The Rangers also won their first series of the year after a victory Monday night that snapped Houston's 10-game winning streak. They entered as the only team in the majors not to have won a series or two games in a row.
 
In his third start, Rodriguez (1-1) allowed three hits and one run -- both season-bests -- in a season-high eight innings to get his first win since May 26, 2013, with the Pirates.
 
Texas jumped on Scott Feldman (2-3) early, tagging him for four runs in the first on an RBI double by Prince Fielder and Peguero's first homer of the season.
