 ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Pinch-hitter Jurickson Profar homered leading off the ninth inning, and the Texas Rangers overcame a four-error inning to beat the Los Angeles Angels 6-5 on Thursday night to keep pace in the playoff chase.

The Rangers started the day a game behind Cleveland for the second wild-card spot in the American League. The Indians beat Minnesota 6-5 on Thursday.

It was the fourth straight time the Rangers have beaten the Angels on a walk-off homer at home. They did it each time in a three-game sweep in late July.

Joe Nathan (6-2) got the win after striking out two with a runner at third and one out in the top of the ninth.

Profar’s sixth homer came off Michael Kohn (1-4).
