Pearce has 4 hits, Orioles top Rangers 5-2

Posted: Updated:
BALTIMORE (AP) -- Steve Pearce had a career-high four hits and drove in two runs, and Wei-Yin Chen shut down Texas again as the Baltimore Orioles completed a four-game sweep of the Rangers with a 5-2 victory on Thursday night.

The Rangers have lost nine consecutive road games -- their longest skid since 2005 when current Orioles manager Buck Showalter was at the helm. Baltimore (46-39) completed its first four-game sweep against Texas since 2004 and improved to a season-high seven games over .500.

Chen (8-3) allowed two runs and six hits with four strikeouts and two walks in six innings. He is 4-0 in four starts against Texas with a 1.67 ERA.

Left-hander Zach Britton earned his 12th save and hasn't allowed a run in 21 consecutive relief appearances.
