ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Kendrys Morales had a pinch-hit, tiebreaking sacrifice fly in the seventh inning to lead the Los Angeles Angels to a 4-2 victory over the Texas Rangers on Saturday.
C.J. Wilson worked into the sixth for the Angels after becoming the first major leaguer in 11 seasons to start consecutive games. He had faced only five batters against his former team in the rain-interrupted series opener.
Mark Trumbo launched a towering two-run homer for the Angels off Matt Harrison (4-3).
Josh Hamilton hit his majors-leading 18th homer - the ninth in six games for the Rangers slugger.
David Carpenter (1-1) faced only two batters after replacing Wilson before the Angels took the lead in the seventh. Ernesto Frieri, acquired from San Diego on May 3, worked 1 2-3 innings before Scott Downs got the final out for his third save.
