Howie Kendrick hit his second home run of the game in the 11th inning and finished with four RBIs, leading the Angels to a 5-4 victory over the Rangers on Tuesday night.
The Rangers have called a news conference for Thursday afternoon to announce the new $120 million contract for two-time All-Star shortstop Elvis Andrus.
The Rangers and Elvis Andrus have a deal on a $120 million, eight-year extension that will bring Andrus’ commitment to $131 million over 10 years.

Rangers GM Jon Daniels was talking Thursday about still wanting to re-sign Josh Hamilton. About an hour later, Hamilton was with the Angels. It has been that kind of offseason for Texas.
Texas Rangers players Michael Young, David Murphy and Elvis Andrus have participated in a series of taped public service announcements to encourage students to stop bullying one another.
