ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Martin Perez threw eight scoreless innings, Donnie Murphy had a sacrifice fly and the Texas Rangers got a series-clinching 1-0 victory over the Houston Astros on Sunday.

Perez scattered five hits and walked three, but the left-hander benefited from four double-play grounders. He struck out two.

Murphy's deep flyball to the left-center gap in the sixth sent home Josh Wilson for the lone run of the game against Brett Oberholtzer.

Alexi Ogando worked a perfect ninth to convert his first save chance.
