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.
