Michael Young got Texas on the board with a three-run shot, and Mark Teixeira followed with one of his own for back-to-back home runs in a five-run third inning. The offensive outburst was plenty for starter Jon Wasdin and four Rangers relievers.
Mark Buehrle eventually found his groove, shutting out Texas over his final four innings of work, but a five-run third did in the White Sox lefty for his fourth straight loss. Jim Thome and Joe Crede both hit solo shots, but it wasn't enough to overcome the Rangers.
