Sammy Sosa singled home the game-tying run in the ninth inning, but the Rangers fell one frame later when Frank Francisco allowed the game-winning run. Sosa's hit picked up Vicente Padilla, who struggled through 6 2/3 innings.
Howie Kendrick had three hits, the largest of which came in the 10th, when his single plated Garret Anderson and gave the Angels the best record in the Majors. Anderson put the Halos ahead earlier with a two-run home run.
