KEY MOMENT: The Rangers trimmed a 5-1 deficit to 5-4 in the eighth inning on singles by Shin-Soo Choo, Elvis Andrus, Mike Carp (RBI) and Adrian Beltre (RBI), then an RBI fielder's-choice grounder by Alex Rios, who took second on an error by Howie Kendrick. But after Leonys Martin was walked intentionally to put runners on first and second, Angels setup man Joe Smith replaced the struggling Kevin Jepsen and got Geovany Soto to ground into an inning-ending fielder's choice.

AT THE PLATE: With the score tied, 1-1, David Freese and Chris Iannetta singled to open the fifth, and Kole Calhoun blasted a three-run homer — his 13th of the season — to right, a shot that traveled an estimated 413 feet. Calhoun, who fell a home run short of the cycle in a July 10 game at Texas, also singled and doubled, falling a triple short of a cycle. Iannetta had three singles and two runs, and Freese had a single, a double and two runs.AT THE PLATE: With the score tied, 1-1, David Freese and Chris Iannetta singled to open the fifth, and Kole Calhoun blasted a three-run homer — his 13th of the season — to right, a shot that traveled an estimated 413 feet.
