Rangers 11, Angels 10 (F)

There isn’t an easy way to describe this one.

The Los Angeles Angels had a six-run lead after four innings, and appeared in line to cruise to Victory Lane. But the Texas Rangers didn’t go down without a fight.

The Rangers rallied all the way back to tie the game on a solo home run by Ian Kinsler in the ninth, but then saw the Angels regain a three-run lead off Joe Nathan in the 10th.

But Nelson Cruz opened the bottom of the 10th with a homer, sparking what became a walk-off victory for the Rangers. Elvis Andrus proved to be the hero of the game, delivering a two-run single to send the Rangers to an 11-10 victory.

Texas extended its lead over Anaheim to four games in the American League West.

As I see this game, it's a win if the manager does something he's done in several games prior and that's pinch run someone for Morales when he reached second base. I see it as a poor managing decision. He could have use Peter, Howie or Vernon and any one of those player would have made it home safely. There were other decisions that could have been different but, that is the one that was glaring to me.
Go Angels!!!
