ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Howie Kendrick hit an RBI double in the 10th inning and C.J. Cron homered, leading the Los Angeles Angels to a 3-2 victory over the Texas Rangers on Saturday night.
Josh Hamilton led off the 10th with an infield single against Neal Cotts (2-4), and Kendrick greeted Jason Frasor with a drive to the fence in left-center on a 3-2 pitch.
Mike Morin (1-1) pitched one inning for his first major league victory, striking out three and hitting a batter.
Jered Weaver allowed a run and four hits through eight innings, struck out five and walked two after back-to-back losses to Oakland and Cleveland. The three-time All-Star left with a 2-1 lead after Cron’s leadoff homer in the eighth, but Kevin Jepsen promptly surrendered a home run to center field by Shin-Soo Choo on his second pitch in the ninth.
