Rangers End Halo's Streak at 8

The Angels came close to notching their ninth win a row last night when Dallas McPherson homered off Texas closer Francisco Cordero in the ninth to tie the game. But Texas came back in the 11th to win the game off of reliever Scot Shields.

Still, you have to admire this team that is giving Texas all they can handle every night. The Angels will look to win the series outright tonight when rookie Ervin Santana takes the hill against Texas right-hander Chris Young. Santana has been very strong at home this season but in his only road start the youngster gave up six runs on eight hits to the Indians. But that was Santana's first start in the majors so look for a more confident and poised pitcher tonight in Arlington.

Young had not given up more than three runs since April 17 before he faced the Angels last week and was battered for 5 runs in just 5 innings. But he did bounce back against Houston to hold the 'Stros to just 3 runs over 7 innings. Still, in three starts against Young the Halo hitters are averaging better than a run an inning. Not to mention the fact that Angel hitters always feel comfortable swinging the lumber at the Ballpark.
