Matt Harrison worked five scoreless innings for his 10th victory, Leonys Martin had a pair of extra-base hits for his first three RBIs in the majors and the Texas Rangers beat Colorado.

Martin, the Cuban defector who signed with the Rangers last year, had an RBI double in the second and a two-run triple an inning later.
 

Harrison (10-3) won his sixth consecutive decision. His outing was cut short because of tightness in his lower back that caused soreness in his left hip.
 

Alex White (2-6) lost his third straight decision.
 

Texas finished a majors-best 14-4 in interleague play, winning all six of its series against National League teams. The Rockies were 2-13 against the AL.
 

The Texas Rangers have surpassed 1.5 million in attendance with their franchise-record 22nd sellout of the season.

With an announced crowd of 45,407 for Sunday night's game against Colorado, the Rangers have a total home attendance of 1,532,530 in 35 dates. It is the fastest the team has reached that mark.
