ARLINGTON, Texas -- Martin Perez pitched a three-hitter for his first career shutout,
#1
ARLINGTON, Texas -- Martin Perez pitched a three-hitter for his first career shutout, Leonys Martin drove in four runs and the Texas Rangers routed the Chicago White Sox 12-0 Friday night. Martin homered and was one of four Texas batters with three hits apiece. Robinson Chirinos also went deep. Perez (3-0) retired his last 12 batters and struck out eight in his second complete game, including rookie Jose Abreu three times. Perez retired seven straight after Adam Eaton opened the game with a single and never allowed more than one baserunner in an inning. Martin had a two-run triple and Chirinos hit a two-run homer on the next pitch in seven-run third inning off Felipe Paulino (0-2). Martin homered for a 10-0 lead in the fourth. Chirinos and Jim Adduci set career highs with three hits apiece. Alex Rios also had three hits and scored each time he reached base. Prince Fielder, who came in hitting .164, reached base all five times he batted, including a run-scoring double. He also singled, walked twice and was hit by a pitch. Chicagos Alexei Ramirez extended a franchise record by getting a hit in his 17th straight game to start the season. His soft single to right in the fifth extended his streak to 21 games going back to last season. Kevin Kouzmanoff extended the hitting streak at the start of his Texas career to nine games with a pair of run-scoring singles. Perez has thrown 17 straight scoreless innings after he went eight in a 1-0 win over Houston. He ended the game with a strikeout of Dayan Viciedo. The other complete game for Perez was a 6-1 win over the Astros last Aug. 11. Paulino had to endure the first seven-run inning in the majors this season with no sign of help in the third because the Chicago bullpen was just two days removed from a 6-4 loss in 14 innings against Boston. White Sox infielder Leury Garcia had to pitch the last inning against the Red Sox and took the loss. Martins triple into the right-field corner brought in two, and Chirinos sent one just over the 14-foot wall in left field for a 6-0 lead. Rios had a two-run single, and Fielder brought him home with a double off Paulino, who also had a walk, a hit batter and two wild pitches in the inning. When Kouzmanoff lined out to end the third, White Sox reliever Zach Putnam had just started warming up. Putnam replaced Paulino in the fourth after a two-out homer by Martin and Chirinos third hit, a single to right. Paulino, trying to come back from elbow ligament-replacement surgery in 2012, has allowed 35 hits and 23 earned runs in 18 1-3 innings over four starts. NOTES: Rangers manager Ron Washington said 3B Adrian Beltre (strained quadriceps) would likely play next Friday at Seattle, the first game after hes eligible to come off the disabled list. ... Martin matched his career high with four RBIs. He also did it Aug. 28 last season at Seattle.

Rockies Jerseys 2020 . PETERSBURG, Fla.KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Royals general manager Dayton Moore will have at least two more years to prove that he can get the once-wayward franchise that he took over in 2006 back to the playoffs. After leading Kansas City to its best record in more than 20 years this past season, Moore was rewarded with a two-year contract extension Friday. The new deal, the financial terms of which were not disclosed, would keep him in charge of baseball operations through the 2016 season. "When Daytons contract was extended during the 2009 season, I felt that this franchise had begun to turn the corner and that we were pointed in the proper direction," Royals president Dan Glass said in a statement. "Its been a challenging process, but we are now seeing tangible evidence that the process is working." Moore took over an organization that would lose at least 100 games for the third straight season in 2006. But he quickly set about rebuilding the Royals farm system, using savvy moves and intelligent drafts to build it into one of the most talented in baseball. Many of those homegrown players have matriculated to the major leagues over the past couple of seasons. Among those who contributed to an 86-76 finish, the Royals best since the 1989 season, were Gold Glove first baseman Eric Hosmer, All-Star catcher Salvador Perez and All-Star closer Greg Holland, all of whom arrived in Kansas City under Moores watch. The Royals have also locked up several of their homegrown stars to long-term, club-frriendly contracts, including Perez and Gold Glove outfield Alex Gordon.dddddddddddd "Im very proud of the entire organization," Moore said, "especially our scouting and player development departments for their dedication and commitment to the Royals. Its a tremendous honour and privilege to work with Mr. Glass, Dan and the entire family." The Royals rewarded manager Ned Yost with a two-year extension in October, which meant that for the past couple months hed been working on a longer contract than his boss. Moore had said all along he wasnt worried about a new deal getting done. The team has been modest in free agency this off-season. The Royals are likely losing right-hander Ervin Santana, but theyve already signed left-hander Jason Vargas to a four-year, $32 million contract. Theyre also looking to upgrade in right field and at second base. Moore was born in Wichita, Kan., and grew up a Royals fan. He played baseball at Garden City (Kan.) Community College before graduating from George Mason. After a brief stint as a college coach, he joined the Atlanta Braves as a scout, and slowly rose through the ranks. He took over as assistant general manager in 2005, and interview for the Royals vacancy created by the firing of Allard Baird a couple of months later. "Dayton is not only an outstanding baseball man," Glass said, "but hes very much a part of our family and one of the top individuals Ive ever had the pleasure of working with." ' ' '
