(DETROIT) - After grounding into a double play to end the top of the seventh inning, Shin-Soo Choo still held out hope that he'd have another chance to extend his on-base streak. It happened in the ninth inning with an infield single as the Rangers beat the Detroit Tigers 3-0, splitting their weekend series. Austin Bibens-Dirkx pitched impressively into the sixth inning for Texas, and Jurickson Profar homered in the first. Bibens-Dirkx (2-2) allowed three hits and a walk in 5 1/3 innings. He struck out five. Jose Leclerc struck out five in 1 2/3 hitless innings of relief for Texas. Jake Diekman pitched the eighth, and Keone Kela finished for his 22nd save in 22 chances. Texas manager Jeff Banister was ejected in the second inning after one of his players was called out for interference. Michael Fulmer (3-8) allowed two earned runs and five hits in seven innings.
