The ninth didn't have to be so dramatic for Rangers

At least not in Texas outfielder David Murphy's eyes. Murphy thinks he caught the one-out single to left that Juan Rivera hit with two outs to put runners on the corners.

Murphy said he watched the replay, and the ball landed in his glove, which was sliding across the ground.The one problem is that Murphy didn't have time to sell the catch because that could have allowed pitcher John McDonald to score.

"I think I caught it," he said. "I kind of turned my head and looked way. But if  try to sell it and they don't go for it, the guys are running. What do I do then?"

The good news for the Rangers is that it turned out not to matter as Darren Oliver struck out the game's next batter - Edwin Encarnacion - to end the game.
