Rangers grab series

Rangers 5, White Sox 1
Starting in the No. 2 hole, Elvis Andrus went 2-for-3 and stole third base. (AP)
Ian Kinsler led off with his ninth homer of the year, and the Rangers chipped away from there with several well-placed knocks. That helped make a winner out of Matt Harrison, who tossed five scoreless innings and extended his shutout streak to 10 straight frames.
