ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Josh Hamilton and Marlon Byrd hit home
runs and the Texas Rangers beat Los Angeles 4-3 on Sunday to avoid
a sweep of the four-game series.
Both home runs went to center field, a day after center fielder
Torii Hunter had robbed the Rangers of a home run for the second
straight game. Hunter, trying to win his eighth straight Gold
Glove, was still a little banged up after hitting the back of his
head against the fence and had the day off.
Kevin Millwood (9-7) won his third straight start, allowing two
runs and five hits in 6 2-3 innings following back-to-back
complete-game victories over Detroit and Kansas City.
