Rangers win 7th in a row, 4-3 over Orioles in makeup game

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Shin-Soo Choo hit a go-ahead two-run single, Ian Desmond homered halfway up the hill in center field and the Rangers beat the Baltimore Orioles 4-3 on Monday night in a makeup game matching the American League's top two teams.

Texas extended its season-best winning streak to seven games, the last four being one-run decisions. Since the makeup of an April 17 rainout counted as a series, the AL West-leading Rangers stretched their club record to 10 consecutive series wins — the longest in the American League since Tampa Bay's 10 in a row three years ago.

Desmond's 11th homer was a solo shot in the third, an inning before Bobby Wilson ended a 10-pitch at-bat with a sacrifice fly and Choo followed by lining a single to right off Kevin Gausman (0-5) for a 4-3 lead.
