Young strikes out for third time

Barring an strange turn of events, Michael Young won't catch Ivan Rodriguez for most hits in Rangers franchise history Tuesday night in Miami.

Young struck out against reliever Brian Sanches for the first out in the eighth inning. That made Young 0-for-4 with three strikeouts on the night.

The Rangers trail 2-1 after 7 1/2 innings. They'll need to have a long rally in the ninth or force extra innings for Young to get another at-bat. He has 1,746 hits with the Rangers, one fewer than Rodriguez.
