ARLINGTON -- Rangers designated hitter Shin-Soo Choo extended his Major League-high on-base streak to 43 games in the third inning of Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Astros by drawing a walk against left-handed starter Dallas Keuchel.

Choo's streak is now tied for the longest in the American League since 2015, when Minnesota's Joe Mauer had a 43-game on-base streak. The only streak longer in the Majors over the past three seasons was 46 games by Atlanta's Freddie Freeman in 2016.
