ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) – Maicer Izturis hit a two-out RBI single in the ninth inning and the Angels beat the Texas Rangers 3-2 on Saturday in another tough-luck start for Los Angeles right-hander Dan Haren.

Izturis hit a liner to left off Darren Oliver (1-4) that drove home Jeff Mathis, the light-hitting catcher who led off the ninth with a single before a sacrifice bunt by Peter Bourjos.

Angels third baseman Alberto Callaspo had a pair of RBI doubles, along with a couple of nice defensive plays.

Haren wound up without a decision after allowing only two runs in 7 2-3 innings, and is winless in his last five starts despite his 1.93 ERA, second-best in the American League.

He won his first four decisions this season.
