Andrus heating up while flawless in the field
ARLINGTON -- Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus is on a good roll, batting close to .300 -- .291 entering Friday -- over the last two weeks to bring his season average to .239.

He has reached base in 15 straight games, the fourth-longest streak in the American League this year. He has a stolen base in two straight games. He has walked in five of his last seven games.

All of this while handling 82 chances without an error, the most of any shortstop in baseball.

"He's starting to have good at-bats," manager Ron Washington said, "Starting to feel comfortable, starting to feel good about himself, starting to understand what he's capable of doing now. In the beginning of the season, you're always searching. You don't know how you're going to come out of the gate.

"He's going to catch up, and he's starting to catch up," Washington said. "He's starting to become more aggressive on the basepaths."
