ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Adrian Beltre singled home Shin-Soo Choo with the game winner in the ninth inning, and the Texas Rangers saved a run on a successful replay challenge in a 3-2 victory against the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday night.
Choo, who also scored the tying run in the seventh, reached base for the fourth time on a walk to start the ninth against Phillies left-hander Mario Hollands (0-1), who was making his major league debut.
After Elvis Andrus' sacrifice bunt and walk to Prince Fielder, new Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg went to right-hander B.J. Rosenberg. Beltre singled softly left right-center field, scoring Choo without a throw.
New Texas closer Joakim Soria got the win with a perfect ninth inning in his season debut.
