Rangers take home field, prepare for Rays in ALDS

Mike Napoli broke a tie in the ninth inning with his fourth homer in two games, and the Texas Rangers finally clinched home-field advantage in the AL division series with a 3-1 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday night.
Napoli, the longtime Angels catcher, also homered in the second
inning as the Rangers set a franchise record with their 96th
victory - including six straight heading into the postseason.
With 14 wins in their final 16 games, Texas (96-66) held off
Detroit (95-67) for the right host the wild-card winner at Rangers
Ballpark on Friday.
Gil Velasquez drove in the only run for the Angels, who were in
playoff contention until Monday. Los Angeles (86-76) lost six of
its last seven.
The Rangers will open the post-season against Tampa Bay.
