Kevin Millwood, trying to win his third straight start, tossed six innings of three-run ball to keep the Rangers in the game, but the bats were shut down by veteran lefty Kenny Rogers. Michael Young and Sammy Sosa each collected RBI sacrifice flies.
Kenny Rogers was outstanding in his first home start of the season, allowing just one run on four hits over six innings. Carlos Guillen laced a key two-run single to right in the fifth inning, and Gary Sheffield clubbed a two-run homer in the seventh.
