KANSAS CITY, MO — . -- Scott Feldman outpitched Zack Greinke with eight scoreless innings and the Texas Rangers extended their winning streak to five games after a 2-0 win over the Kansas City Royals on Friday.

The Rangers, who managed four hits, learned before the game that pitcher Vicente Padilla has H1N1 influenza, known informally as swine flu.

Feldman (9-3) pitched beyond the seventh inning for the first time, giving up four hits for his career-high ninth win. Marlon Byrd homered in the fourth and Hank Blalock hit a run-scoring single in the eighth.

The Royals had five hits in their season-high 10th straight loss. Greinke (10-6) lasted seven innings, giving up one run and three hits.
