ARLINGTON, Texas - Leonys Martin and Elvis Andrus each scored three runs for Texas, including twice each in an 11-run inning that was the biggest in the majors this season, and the Rangers beat the Houston Astros 16-5 on Monday night.
Martin got the Rangers big third inning started with his majors-leading 11th bunt single before a single by Andrus. The top two hitters in the lineup came home on a single by A.J. Pierzynski, and both got on base and scored again before the Astros finally got the third out.
All nine Rangers scored in the third, when they sent 15 batters to the plate and had seven hits - six singles and a double - along with three walks, two Houston errors and a sacrifice bunt. Only five of the 11 runs were earned.
