Kendrick lifts Angels past Rangers 3-2 in 10

Former Rangers star Josh Hamilton scores from first after Shin Soo-Choo’s homer had tied the game in the top of the ninth.

Howie Kendrick hit an RBI double in the 10th inning and C.J. Cron homered, leading the Los Angeles Angels to a 3-2 victory over the Texas Rangers on Saturday night.

Josh Hamilton led off the 10th with an infield single against Neal Cotts (2-4), and Kendrick greeted Jason Frasor with a drive to the fence in left-center on a 3-2 pitch.

Mike Morin (1-1) pitched one inning for his first major league victory, striking out three and hitting a batter.

Jered Weaver allowed a run and four hits through eight innings, struck out five and walked two after back-to-back losses to Oakland and Cleveland. The three-time All-Star left with a 2-1 lead after Cron’s leadoff homer in the eighth, but Kevin Jepsen promptly surrendered a home run to center field by Shin-Soo Choo on his second pitch in the ninth.
