Scott Feldman matched the Texas club record for road wins in a season, earning No. 11 with a dominant performance that carried the Rangers past the Baltimore Orioles 5-1 Friday night.

Feldman (15-4) gave up one run and four hits in 6 2-3 innings to improve to 11-1 on the road. The only other Texas pitchers to win as many away games in one season were Rick Helling (1998) and Vicente Padilla (2008). Feldman also matched Bobby Witt's team record of seven straight road victories, set in 1990.

Nelson Cruz hit his 31st home run for the Rangers, who have won four straight. Texas is in pursuit of the first-place Los Angeles Angels in the AL West and chasing Boston for a wild-card berth.
