ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Tyson Ross pitched 6 2-3 shutout innings as the San Diego Padres edged the Texas Rangers 2-1 on Sunday.

Ross (6-7) extended his homerless streak to 86 2-3 innings over 14 starts, the current longest streak in the majors.

Craig Kimbrel recorded a four-out save, his 23rd of the season. He allowed a ninth-inning run when Rougned Odor's single to center scored Adrian Beltre and left runners on first and second.

Will Venable scored San Diego's first run in the second inning from third base on a throwing error by second baseman Odor. Venable reached third when his sharp grounder caromed off the glove off first baseman Mitch Moreland into short right field. He sped to third before Odor could retrieve it.

Justin Upton got the other run in the seventh when he reached on a fielder's choice and came home on Jedd Gyorko's two-out single.
