Rangers | Martin Perez wins sixth straight
Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez won his sixth straight start, which is a franchise rookie record, by beating the Oakland Athletics Tuesday, Sept. 3. "After the leadoff double, he was lights out," C A.J. Pierzynski said after the Rangers' 5-1 win at O.co Coliseum. "He had all the pitches going. He had a great changeup tonight, which has always been his pitch. But he really located his fastball well. And he also was able to throw two different types of breaking balls for strikes, which I think really kept them off balance." He gave up only one run and eight hits while striking out five and walking none in seven frames.
Fantasy Tip: Perez has come into his own in the second half of the season and is pitching with plenty of confidence. If he's still available on your league's waiver wire, snatch him up immediately.
