Shin-Soo Choo is a game away from matching the majors’ longest on-base streak this season only because the Texas Rangers couldn’t protect a late lead in a loss to the San Diego Padres.

Choo singled with two outs in the ninth inning to reach base in his 39th straight game after Wil Myers and Hunter Renfroe hit run-scoring doubles as part of a three-run eighth that helped the Padres rally for a 3-2 win Tuesday night.

The Rangers led 2-0 when Choo struck out looking in the seventh to drop to 0 for 4. Instead of the streak ending in a win Torey Krug Jersey , though, Choo kept the Texas ninth alive with a liner over leaping shortstop Freddy Galvis before Brad Hand got Nomar Mazara to fly out with two runners on for his 22nd save.

”After fourth at-bat, strikeout, I wish we just finish the game,” said Choo, who is trying to match a 40-game streak by Philadelphia’s Odubel Herrera from March 30 to May 19. ”That’s a nice, clean game, 2-0. I’m not really expecting the fifth at-bat.”

Four of six San Diego hitters reached against Jake Diekman (1-1). After Myers ended the Texas shutout, Christian Villanueva lifted a tying sacrifice fly to left before Renfroe’s go-ahead liner down the line in left.

”We needed it a lot,” said Eric Hosmer, whose one-out single helped get the rally going after a leadoff walk to Travis Jankowski. ”Offensively, we haven’t been firing on all cylinders, so it was big to come from behind, kind of steal this one.”

Rougned Odor hit a solo homer for Texas in the second and Robinson Chirinos added one in the fourth against former teammate Tyson Ross.

San Diego relievers struck out five straight batters, starting with the second of two from Matt Strahm (2-2) in the seventh. Kirby Yates fanned the side in the eighth and Hand finished the Padres’ second win in 10 games. The Rangers lost just their second in the past 10.

Austin Bibens-Dirkx gave up two hits, struck out six and walked four in five innings in his fourth start for Texas. The right-hander is in a similar fill-in role from last season, when he made his major league debut as a 32-year-old following 12 years in the minors and won five games.

”Everyone before me did their job,” Diekman said. ”My job is to get it done and I didn’t do that. That stings really hard.”

Mazara had three hits a night after leaving early for precautionary reasons because of tightness in his left hamstring.

ROSS SOLID AGAIN

Ross had another solid start in a bounce-back season after posting a 7.71 ERA for Texas last year before his late-season release in his return from surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome. The right-hander gave up five hits in six innings. Ross leads San Diego starters with a 3.32 ERA.

KUDOS TO COLON

Texas right-hander Bartolo Colon was honored before the game for passing Juan Marichal for the most wins by a Dominican-born pitcher. The 45-year-old earned his 244th career win at Kansas City on the most recent road trip. Manager Jeff Banister presented him with a jersey with ”244” on the back, and a quote from Marichal was shown on the videoboard calling the milestone ”a special achievement for your career and your country.” Colon needs two wins to pass Dennis Martinez of Nicaragua for the most wins by a pitcher from Latin America.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Rangers: 1B Ronald Guzman was placed on the seven-day concussion disabled list a day after the rookie’s head struck the knee of Padres third baseman Christian Villanueva when Guzman was diving back on an attempted pickoff. … LHP Martin Perez struck out nine in five scoreless innings for Class A Hickory in his first rehab start Monday. Perez has been on the DL since May 10 with right elbow discomfort. Perez had arthroscopic surgery on that elbow in December. He broke a bone in a fall after being spooked by a bull on his ranch in Venezuela.

UP NEXT

LHP Clayton Richard (7-6, 4.23 ERA) is scheduled to pitch for the Padres in the finale of the three-game series. Richard is 6-2 during a streak of nine straight starts with at least six innings Randy Bullock Jersey , the longest active streak for a lefty in the majors. Texas LHP Mike Minor (5-4, 5.06 ERA) hasn’t allowed a homer in his past two starts after giving up at least one in each of the previous seven.



Presented with identical opportunities to ring up a big inning, the Washington Nationals took full advantage and Baltimore Orioles squandered the chance.

That goes a long way toward explaining why the Nationals are a contender and the Orioles own the worst record in the big leagues.

Trea Turner went 4 for 4 with a homer , Anthony Rendon drove in three runs and Washington extended its recent domination of the Orioles with a 9-7 victory Tuesday night.

The game was essentially decided in the fifth inning, which began with Baltimore leading 4-1.

In the top half, the Orioles loaded the bases with no outs and scored only one run – when Manny Machado hit into a 4-6-3 double play.

Washington loaded the bases with no outs in the bottom half and batted around, scoring four runs on four hits and a pair of walks. Adam Eaton contributed a two-run single, Rendon hit a sacrifice fly and Bryce Harper chased starter David Hess with an RBI double.

”They did a lot better job cashing in their bases loaded, nobody out situation than we did,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter conceded.

For the game, Baltimore was 0 for 5 with runners in scoring position. The Nationals were 5 for 10.

”This team is starting to become relentless,” manager Dave Martinez said. ”They kept pounding and pounding and pounding, had a couple of big innings there and scored some runs.”

The Nationals trailed 6-5 before getting six hits in a four-run seventh. Rendon delivered a two-run double off Tanner Scott (0-1) that made it 7-6, and Turner capped his four-hit night with a double.

Both teams noted that more than a couple of Washington’s hits were bloopers and seeing-eye grounders, but the Nationals certainly weren’t about to apologize.

”I feel like all year we’ve been hitting balls right at people,” Turner said, ”so it’s nice to get a bunch of those in one game and come out with a win.”

Washington has won six straight over its neighboring interleague rival, including four games this season by a combined 20-8.

Pitching in his second big league game, Nationals starter Jefry Rodriguez gave up five runs, four hits and four walks in five innings.

Justin Miller (5-0) pitched two innings of relief Sergei Bobrovsky Jersey , newcomer Kelvin Herrera worked a perfect eighth and Sean Doolittle gave up a solo home run to Joey Rickard while earning his 19th save.

Jace Peterson and Trey Mancini each hit two-run homers for the Orioles, who have lost 16 of 19.

This one can be blamed on an all-too-telling fifth inning.

”It’s just one of those things where if they got hits they seemed to have found holes,” Showalter said. ”They hit some balls hard, too.”

STAY CLASSY

It’s been a tough year for Harper, whose batting average dipped to .212 following a 1-for-24 stretch though Monday.

”He’s handled it with class and dignity,” general manager Mike Rizzo said. ”He’s more worried about the wins than the hits, and that’s an important aspect that he has learned throughout his career. You know he’s become a team leader for us. When you’re going your worst, you have to be at your best and I think that’s what Harp’s showed so far this season.”

MANY MOVES

Nationals: Placed 1B Matt Adams on the 10-day disabled list (retroactive to June 16) with a fractured left index finger. Additionally, Washington optioned RHP Wander Suero (1-0, 3.63 ERA) to Triple-A Syracuse, recalled Rodriguez from Double-A Harrisburg and added reliever Kelvin Herrera, obtained in a trade with Kansas City on Monday.

Orioles: DH Pedro Alvarez was designated for assignment in the wake of a 1-for-18 skid that dropped his batting average to .181. Baltimore also selected the contract of INF Steve Wilkerson from Triple-A Norfolk and recalled C Caleb Joseph, who now has his brother, Corban, as a teammate.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Nationals: RHP Jeremy Hellickson (hamstring) threw a simulated game in the bullpen, throwing 50 pitches without facing batters.

Orioles: RHP Andrew Cashner (back) is expected to come off the DL on Wednesday; OF Colby Rasmus (hip) could be activated Thursday and 3B Tim Beckham (core surgery) was slated to play nine innings for Norfolk on Tuesday. If all goes well, he could come off the DL this weekend.

UP NEXT

Nationals: Gio Gonzalez (6-3, 3.01 ERA) starts the second game of the series Wednesday night. The lefty threw 6 2/3 innings in a 6-0 win over Baltimore on May 28.

Orioles: Cashner (2-8, 4.98) returns from a stint on the DL in which he missed just one start.
