Blalock delivers win
Rangers 9, Blue Jays 8
Kevin Millwood allowed five runs on eight hits over 5 2/3 innings on Saturday. (Aaron Harris/AP)
It was a day on which no lead was safe -- none, that is, except the one Hank Blalock gave the Rangers in the top half of the 10th inning with a bases-loaded sac fly to deep center field. After several lead changes and game-tying rallies, that one-run lead held up.
