Angels Fall To Rangers In Dramatic Fashion
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Elvis Andrus had a game-ending two-run single in the 10th inning, and the Texas Rangers rallied from six runs down to beat the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday night.
The Rangers trailed 7-1 in the fifth and then 10-7 after the Angels scored three in the top of the 10th.
Albert Pujols connected twice for his second straight multihomer game. His second homer, a two-run shot in the 10th, was one of four long balls hit between the two teams in the last two innings. Texas’ Ian Kinsler homered in the bottom of the ninth to tie it 7-all.
Chris Iannetta also homered in the 10th for the Angels, but Texas came right back.
Nelson Cruz homered, and Mitch Moreland singled off Jason Isringhausen (3-1) to bring the Rangers to 10-9. With the bases loaded, Andrus drove a single past third baseman Alberto Callaspo to set off a wild celebration for the Rangers.
