Rangers 9, Angels 7
Jered Weaver allowed seven runs over 5 1/3 innings on Wednesday. (Donna McWilliam/AP)
The sixth inning was one to forget for Jered Weaver, as he allowed five runs in the frame and was pulled during the finale. Juan Rivera hit a three-run homer in the ninth to tie it, but Justin Speier gave up a walk-off homer as the Halos' lead in the AL West dropped to half a game.
