Runs record is next for Young
NEW YORK -- The next club record within Michael Young's reach is the all-time record for runs scored. Young, who set a new club record for career games played on Tuesday, has 945 runs scored. He is 13 behind Rafael Palmeiro.

"I really don't know where I'm at on some of these records," Young said. "I know there has never been a world championship won in Texas. That's what I'm focused on."

Young could also break the club career strikeout record later this season. He needs 27 more to tie Juan Gonzalez's club record. Young doesn't mind.

"You take the good with the bad," Young said. "I hit deep in counts. I feel comfortable hitting with two strikes, so I'm going to strike out. But I still try to do everything I can to put the ball in play and make contact."
