    The shutout was the third by Rangers pitchers this season. Perez earned his second win of the season by holding the Astros scoreless through eight innings. The Rangers rode the pitching of Martin Perez to their second 1-0 victory in three games over the Astros on Sunday afternoon. "That happens when you throw all your pitches down and you get a lot of groundballs," Perez said. Texas won the series opener 1-0 in 12 innings Friday night after Yu Darvish was perfect thru five innings. The lone run came on a sacrifice fly in the sixth by Donnie Murphy, who was in the game only because shortstop Elvis Andrus got ejected at the end of the third after taking a called third strike.
