Rangers hang on for 9-8 victory

Arizona scored two runs in the 12th and brought the winning run to the plate, but former L.D. Bell and UT-Arlington product Ryan Roberts hit into a fielder's choice to end the game. Chris Davis was the star for the Rangers, collecting four hits and swatting the go-ahead two-run homer in the 12th. David Murphy followed with a solo homer that turned out to be a key run.

Omar Vizquel said he feels about 100 pounds lighter after collecting his 2,678th hit and moving past Luis Aparicio for the all-time hits lead by a native of Venezuela.
