Ben Sheets inched closer to a milestone as he now sits four strikeouts away from his 1,000th. Unfortunately, he came out in the seventh and Francisco Cordero couldn't get out of the ninth, as the Rangers hit four consecutive two-out RBI singles.
Brandon McCarthy had a successful return, allowing just one run in five innings. Until the ninth, though, a loss looked imminent. That is, until Francisco Cordero allowed four straight two-out singles, including Michael Young's game-winner.
