Vladimir Guerrero drove in the go-ahead
run in the eighth and Cliff Lee pitched seven innings in his final
tuneup before the playoffs, leading the Texas Rangers past the Los
Angeles Angels 3-2 on Thursday night.
Nelson Cruz, who had three hits, doubled to right and stole
third on a pitch in the dirt with one out in the eighth. Guerrero
lined a single to left off reliever Jordan Walden (0-1) to give
Texas the lead.
Darren O'Day (6-2) relieved Lee and allowed a game-tying home
run to Peter Bourjos.
Lee, who struck out eight without a walk, gave up four singles
and an unearned run. After allowing a double in the sixth, Lee
retired the final six batters. He will start Game 1 of the AL
division series Wednesday against either Tampa Bay or New York.
