HOUSTON — Zack Greinke threw six solid innings, Abraham Toro homered and the Houston Astros sent Texas to its 12th straight loss, beating the Rangers 3-1.
The Rangers’ skid is tied for second-longest in team history and the first time they’ve dropped a dozen in a row since 1982.
The Texas record is 15 straight losses in September 1972, under manager Ted Williams in the team’s first season after moving from Washington.
The Rangers’ 0-10 road trip was the worst in team history. Texas went 0-9 on a trip earlier this season from May 25-June 3.
