Frank Francisco made things a little more interesting than he needed to with two outs in the ninth, but he got Robert Andino to strike out to end the game and seal a 6-4 Rangers victory. The Rangers went 4-3 on their seven-game road trip and won a series for the first time since the season-opening sweep of Cleveland.
Matt Harrison was the star of the game, overcoming a bad start to give the Rangers seven innings and time to chip away at a 4-0 deficit. They did, and Taylor Teagarden and David Murphy (a combined 2-for-40 entering Monday) had the game-tying and go-ahead hits.
Josh Hamilton was a late scratch and will be evaluated Tuesday in Arlington. The Rangers consider him day-to-day, but the disabled list could become an option depending on how his exam goes.
