The Los Angeles Angels hosted the Texas Rangers on Wednesday night in the second game of their best-of-three series. Unfortunately, the vaunted Rangers offense reared its head as they handed the Halos a 6-2 loss to even up the series.
Texas struck first, plating three runs in the top of the third inning with an RBI triple from Elvis Andrus and RBI doubles from Michael Young and Mike Napoli. The Halos finally got on the board in the fifth inning, as Alberto Callaspo hit his 10th homer of the year. The two-run shot cut the Texas lead to 3-2.
Nelson Cruz doubled home another Texas run in the top of the eighth and later in the inning Geovany Soto hit a two-run shot of his own to push the Rangers' lead back out to 6-2.
C.J. Wilson lasted just 2.2 innings in the game, giving up three runs on four hits and three walks.
