vladguerrero3 dl Guerrero lifts Rangers over Angels Vladimir Guerrero singled home the go-ahead run in the bottom of the eighth inning to lift Texas to a 3-2 victory over Los Angeles in the first of a four-game set to conclude the regular season.

Guerrero drove in a pair of runs and Nelson Cruz went 3-for-4 and scored twice, including the decisive run, for the Rangers, who have won two in a row and five out of seven to take an 11-game lead in the division for the first time in franchise history.

Darren O’Day (6-2) gave up the tying run in the top of the eighth but picked up the win and Neftali Feliz locked down his 39th save with a scoreless ninth.

Rookie hurler Jordan Walden (0-1), who grew up in the Dallas area, took the loss in his lone inning of work for the Angels, who had sandwiched a four-game slide with three-game win streaks entering the series. Get more Rangers news on
