That moved him past Rafael Palmeiro for the most runs scored in Rangers history. He already holds the career marks for games played, at-bats, hits, doubles, triples and multi-hit games.
Young scored the record-breaking run on his own, with a home run over the Rangers' bullpen in right-center field in the fifth. It was his eighth home run of the year and gave the Rangers a 5-0 lead against the Athletics. Former Rangers pitcher Rich Harden gave up the home run.
