Rangers fall in extras
Devil Rays 4, Rangers 3
Brandon McCarthy struck out seven over six innings against the Rays on Tuesday. (AP)
 Blalock's solo homer
Texas trailed 3-1 going into the fifth, but Hank Blalock led off with a home run to right field for the third straight game. Starter Brandon McCarthy went six innings and allowed three runs, but the Rangers couldn't conjure up a win in an extra-innings loss to the Rays, as reliever Scott Feldman gave up the winning run in the 10th.
