Rangers score 2 in 9th to beat Orioles 2-0

BALTIMORE (AP) -- Leonys Martin ended a scoreless duel with an RBI single in the ninth inning, and the Texas Rangers beat the Baltimore Orioles 2-0 Thursday night behind a dominant pitching performance by Yovani Gallardo and three relievers.
After Shin-Soo Choo led off the ninth with a walk from Chaz Roe (2-1) and moved up on a bunt, Martin ended a 4-for-34 slump with a single to center. Martin came home on a single by Rougned Odor.
Gallardo gave up two hits and three walks over six innings to extend his run of shutout innings to 29 1/3 -- the longest streak in the majors this year and fourth-longest in franchise history.
Keone Kela (5-5) got two outs and Shawn Tolleson worked a perfect ninth to complete the three-hitter and earn his 12th save.
