The outfielder's streak set the Rangers' franchise record, but he was pulled from the game in the eighth innings after grounding in to a fielder's choice. His streak tied that of Kevin Millar's in 2007, and was the longest in the big leagues since Orlando Cabrera's 63-game streak in 2006. With Choo's run now over, Alex Bregman of the Houston Astros holds the majors' longest current on-base streak at 24 games.
Meanwhile, the Cleveland Indians continued to extend their AL Central lead, as Yonder Alonso homered twice, and his team scored in each of the last five innings. All of that supported starter Carlos Carrasco, who pitched in to the seventh inning and struck out eight in his 12th win.
Bartolo Colon struggled in his eighth loss, giving up five runs on eight hits in 4.2 innings. It was his third try for his 246th career win, which will break a tie with Dennis Martinez on the all-time wins list for pitchers born in Latin America. Carrasco's 12th win puts him in a tie with four other pitchers, including his teammate Corey Kluber, for second in the American League, two behind Louis Severino of the New York Yankees.
The Tribe now hold a 9.5-game lead in the AL Central over the Minnesota Twins, who lost to the Kansas City Royals on Saturday. Cleveland will look to complete the sweep of the Rangers in the series finale on Sunday afternoon.
