CHICAGO (AP) — Pinch-hitter Mitch Moreland drove in two runs with a bases-loaded single off closer David Robertson in the ninth inning, and the Texas Rangers beat Chicago 2-1 after getting dominated by White Sox starter Chris Sale on Friday night.

Colby Lewis pitched eight strong innings for Texas. But it looked like this was going to be Sale’s night until the late rally turned a promising night into the White Sox’s season-high eighth straight loss.

He retired the first 17 batters and matched a season-high with 14 strikeouts while pitching two-hit ball over eight innings. He joined Hall of Famers Pedro Martinez and Randy Johnson by striking out at least 12 in five straight starts.
