Moreland leads Rangers to 4-3 win over Padres in 10 innings
SAN DIEGO (AP) --- Mitch Moreland doubled in the go-ahead run in the 10th
inning to give the surging Texas Rangers a 4-3 victory over the San Diego
Padres on Wednesday night.
Moreland's line drive down the right-field line off Bud Norris (1-1) scored
Elvis Andrus, who had reached on a one-out single.
The Rangers cut first-place Houston's lead in the AL West to two games. The
Astros lost 8-3 to Seattle.
Texas, which has won nine of 12 games, retained its one-game lead over
Minnesota for the second AL wild-card berth.
Sam Dyson (2-1) pitched two innings as the Rangers (70-62) went a season-high
eight games over .500.
San Diego's Craig Kimbrel escaped a one-out, bases-loaded jam in the ninth by
striking out pinch-hitter Mike Napoli and Adrian Beltre.
