OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Michael Choice singled in the go-ahead run in the ninth inning and the Texas Rangers rallied to beat the Oakland Athletics 5-4 Tuesday night.
Josh Wilson doubled to drive in the tying run just ahead of Choice, who began his career with the A's.
Alexi Ogando (1-1) recorded one out in the eighth to pick up the win. Joakim Soria pitched the ninth for his fifth save.
Luke Gregerson (0-1) took the loss after blowing his third save opportunity. He gave up two runs on three hits. Gregerson appeared to have pitched out of trouble when he threw out pinch hitter Mitch Moreland at the plate on a safety squeeze by Leonys Martin for the second out.
Martin stole second and scored when Wilson, who cost the Rangers two runs with a fielding error in the fourth, doubled.
