Rangers' Hamilton Keys Come From Behind 5-4 Victory Over Astros In 10

Houston, TX (Sports Network) - Josh Hamilton went 5-for-6 and drove in the go-ahead run with a single in the top of the 10th inning, as the red-hot Texas Rangers rallied to beat the Houston Astros, 5-4, and complete a three-game sweep.

Hamilton extended his career-high hitting streak to 16 games for the Rangers, who have won eight in a row for the first time since a nine-game winning streak from May 20-31, 2005. Julio Borbon went 4-for-5 with an RBI and run scored for the victors.

Chris Ray (2-0) tossed a scoreless ninth to pick up the win. Neftali Feliz pitched a perfect tenth to record his 19th save of the year.
