ARLINGTON, Texas – Colby Lewis pitched seven innings for his 10th victory, Luis Sardinas doubled his career total with four RBIs and the Texas Rangers completed their first series sweep in nearly five months with a 10-3 win Sunday over the playoff-chasing Atlanta Braves.
After being swept in three games to complete a 2-7 trip, the Braves were four games behind Pittsburgh for the National League's second wild card with 13 games left in the regular season. The good news is they headed back to Atlanta for a 10-game homestand.
Michael Choice put the Rangers ahead to stay with an RBI triple in the second, and then added a two-run double in the fifth on a play when he got hurt running the bases and left the game.
