ARLINGTON, Texas -- So far, so good in Alexi Ogando’s bid for his fifth win.

Ogando has thrown four shutout innings and the Rangers lead, 1-0, going to the fifth.

The 27-year-old right-hander has allowed three hits and a walk with three strikeouts. He has whittled on an ERA that was 2.13 when the game began.

Outfielders David Murphy and Nelson Cruz helped Ogando‘s cause with nice defensive plays in the fourth.

Murphy, in center tonight, ranged to his right to cut off a ball hit by Paul Konerko, made a spin and released a perfect throw to Ian Kinsler, covering second. Konerko was trying to stretch the single and was called out.

Cruz, in left field, ended the inning by running down a drive off the bat of Carlos Quentin.
