ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Alex Rios homered in the first inning and drove in the go-ahead run with a bloop double in the seventh, Elvis Andrus also had two RBIs, and the Texas Rangers beat the Los Angeles Angels 4-3 on Sunday.

The Rangers remained 1 1-2 games out of first place in the AL West, as Oakland beat Houston 7-2 to complete a three-game sweep.

Angels rookie Buddy Boshers walked Leonys Martin with one out in the seventh and Ian Kinsler greeted Michael Kohn (1-2) with a ground-rule double into the left field corner.

Andrus followed with a looper into right-center and was robbed of a hit on a diving catch by right fielder Kole Calhoun, but Martin scored the tying run on the sacrifice fly. Center fielder Mike Trout then attempted a diving catch on another Texas leaguer by Rios in left-center, but missed it as Kinsler scored.

Alexi Ogando (6-4) got the victory with 1 1-3 scoreless innings of one-hit relief.
