The catch: It needs a lot of money, and it needs it fast. ARLINGTON, Texas -- Jeff Banister is more impressed with some stout Detroit pitching than the Texas manager is concerned about an offense that got shut out in consecutive games for the first time this season.Michael Fulmer pitched a four-hitter for the first shutout from a Tigers rookie since Justin Verlander 10 years ago, and Victor Martinez and J.D. Martinez homered among three hits apiece in a 7-0 victory over the Rangers on Sunday.Fulmers gem came a day after Matt Boyd, not too far removed from rookie status himself, threw seven scoreless innings in a 2-0 win over Texas ace lefty Cole Hamels.Lets dont take away from what two guys have been able to do on the mound, Banister said. When youve got good stuff and you can execute, you can make any hitter make an out. I think thats more the case the last two nights.Still, the Rangers have been shut out an AL-high four times since the All-Star break. And that includes two weeks since the trade-deadline boost of catcher Jonathan Lucroy and designated hitter Carlos Beltran.Its going to happen man, Beltran said. Baseball is a game of ups and downs. We feel that we have a good team and we feel that were going to be able to bounce back.Fulmer (10-3) retired 16 of the last 17 hitters he faced as Detroit kept the AL West-leading Rangers scoreless over the final 21 innings of the three-game series.The 23-year-old right-hander, who topped his previous longest outing of eight innings in a no-decision against Kansas City, allowed just four singles a day after Boyd limited the Rangers to two hits and Texas finished with three.What I learned was that they were an aggressive team against him, Fulmer, the AL rookie leader in wins, said after striking out nine -- two off his career best -- with no walks. I just looked to make quality pitches on 0-0 counts and early in the count and try to get grounders and weak pop-ups.Ian Kinsler added a solo shot against A.J. Griffin (5-2) after striking out his first three times against the Texas right-hander. Miguel Cabrera hit his team-leading 27th homer in the ninth.ddddddddddddFulmers streak of 13 straight retired ended with Nomar Mazaras single leading off the ninth. But Fulmer finished by getting the top of the Texas order -- Shin-Soo Choo, Ian Desmond and Beltran -- on his way to a career-high 112 pitches.Victor Martinez started the scoring with a two-run shot in the fourth, and J.D. Martinez hit his 100th career homer to knock out Griffin and give the Tigers a 6-0 lead in the seventh.Griffin allowed 11 hits and six runs with eight strikeouts in 6 2/3 innings, his second-longest outing of the season. He gave up at least one homer for the 10th straight game, the longest single-season streak for the Rangers since reliever Joaquin Benoit in 2003.BOPPING BELTREThe 37-year-old third baseman extended his hitting streak to eight games with two singles, giving him multiple hits in seven of those games. Its his third streak of at least eight games this season. The longest was a 10-gamer from June 21 to July 1.SHORT HOPSOn Saturday, Hamels gave up two runs on 14 hits, which was a career high and tied the Texas record. According to the Rangers, hes the first pitcher to allow 14 or more hits and two or fewer runs since John Dopson for Montreal in July 1988. ... Texas lefty reliever Alex Claudios streak of 10 1/3 scoreless innings ended on Cabreras homer.TRAINERS ROOMRangers: LHP Derek Holland (left shoulder inflammation) has another rehab outing with Triple-A Round Rock on Monday and is eligible to come off the 60-day disabled list Saturday.UP NEXTTigers: LHP Daniel Norris (1-0, 4.00 ERA) starts the opener of a three-game series at home against Kansas City.
