Series at a glance:
Rivera's homer not enough
Juan Rivera hit a three-run homer with two outs in the eighth, but the Angels still lost their series opener to the Rangers at home. Kevin Gregg allowed a solo homer in the top of the 12th inning to take the loss. Rookie Jered Weaver left the game trailing but was saved from a loss.
