The scoreless-innings streak by the Texas Rangers' pitching staff has come to an end, but the most important streak is alive and well.

The Rangers beat the American League's reigning Cy Young winner to extend their hottest stretch of the season, and they had a good time in the process.

Ian Kinsler hit two solo homers off Felix Hernandez, and C.J. Wilson allowed only one run in seven innings as the Rangers topped Seattle 5-1 on Saturday for their 10th consecutive victory.

Afterward, the clubhouse seemed to have a little more pep than normal after beating a pitcher many Rangers consider to be the best in the game.

"Anytime you're going up against Felix and you beat him, you're going to have a reaction like that," Kinsler said. "He's a guy you've got to consistently battle. You know that at the start of the game, he knows that at the start of the game, and tonight we were able to push a couple runs across."

The winning streak is the third-longest in club history and pushed the Rangers' advantage in the AL West to three games over the LA Angels.

The Rangers saw their streak of shutout innings reach 33, tied for the second-most in club history, before the Mariners finally broke through on a two-out RBI single by Ichiro Suzuki in the fifth.

It was the lone tally against Wilson, who became the Rangers' first 10-game winner. He allowed five hits and struck out seven while throwing 109 pitches.
