Other teams might have given up when down 11 runs, but the Rangers put together a seven-run rally in the fifth inning, then kept adding to the total to come within one run of tying the Blue Jays. A two-run triple from Ian Kinsler and Nelson Cruz's three-run home run were the evening's offensive highlights for Texas.
