The Rangers were down 9-5 in the ninth, but rallied with two outs. First Robinson Chirinos doubled and moved to third on a wild pitch. Then Delino DeShields Jr. walked and took second on defensive indifference, bringing Choo to the plate. Choo singled, scoring both Chirinos and DeShields Jr. and cutting the deficit to 9-7, but Elvis Andrus struck out to end the game.
The Rangers’ loss was their fifth straight. They open a three-game series in Tampa Bay against the Rays on Saturday.
