ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Alex Rios had a tiebreaking RBI single in the seventh inning, and the Texas Rangers finally gained some ground in the AL wild-card race with a 5-3 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Friday night.

For the first time during their five-game winning streak the Rangers moved closer in the wild-card standings.

Wild-card leader Tampa Bay lost at Toronto, allowing the Rangers to move within a game of the Rays and Cleveland, which beat Minnesota.

With two games left in the regular season, the Rangers still have a chance to go to the postseason for the fourth year in a row.
