The Rangers jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the top of the second, but Toronto answered with four runs in the bottom of the third. Neftali Feliz got the start for Texas, giving up the four earned runs over five innings. A three-run seventh gave Toronto a 7-6 lead, but Michael Young hit a two-out single to tie the game in the top of the ninth.
