Dempster Leads Texas In Win Over Orioles

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Ryan Dempster pitched eight innings, his longest outing in more than two months and his best since being traded to Texas, and the AL West-leading Rangers beat the surprising Baltimore Orioles 5-1 on Monday night.

Dempster (2-1 in Texas, 7-6 overall) retired the last 11 batters he faced. The right-hander acquired from the Chicago Cubs on July 31 allowed one run and four hits.

Former Baylor standout David Murphy had two RBI singles for the Rangers, who opened a 10-game homestand. All nine Texas starters had a hit.

Miguel Gonzalez (5-3), who had won his previous three decisions, gave up four runs in five innings.

The Orioles have still won 11 of their last 16 games.
