ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Vladimir Guerrero drove in the go-ahead run in the eighth and Cliff Lee pitched seven innings in his final tuneup before the playoffs, leading the Texas Rangers past the Los Angeles Angels 3-2 on Thursday night.

Nelson Cruz, who had three hits, doubled to right and stole third on a pitch in the dirt with one out in the eighth. Guerrero lined a single to left off reliever Jordan Walden (0-1) to give Texas the lead.

Darren O’Day (6-2) relieved Lee and allowed a game-tying home run to Peter Bourjos.

Lee, who struck out eight without a walk, gave up four singles and an unearned run. After allowing a double in the sixth, Lee retired the final six batters. He will start Game 1 of the AL division series Wednesday against either Tampa Bay or New York.
