The Rangers will take at least a 4-2 lead into the ninth inning. Colby Lewis allowed another solo homer in the eighth and then hit Aubrey Huff on an 0-2 curveball two batters later to end his night. He allowed five hits in 7 2/3 innings.
Darren O'Day entered to face Buster Posey, who represented the tying run, and got the Rookie of the Year candidate to ground out on a full-count pitch. Neftali Feliz is warming and will pitch the ninth inning. The Rangers' Rookie of the Year candidate hasn't pitched since Game 6 of the ALCS.
Due up for the Rangers: Hamilton (1 for 3, HR, RBI), Guerrero (0 for 2, BB, CS), Cruz (1 for 3, 2B, R).
