ARLINGTON, Texas -- Elvis Andrus and the Texas Rangers always believe theyre going to win. Now theyre getting ever closer to another AL West title.Andrus scored the winning run on All-Star center fielder Ian Desmonds RBI single with no outs in the ninth inning as the Rangers beat the last-place Los Angeles Angels 3-2 on Monday night for their MLB-best 46th come-from-behind victory.That has been our DNA this year. We didnt give up until the last out, until the last pitch, and its contagious, said Andrus, who also had a tying solo homer in the seventh.Andrus led off the ninth with a sharp single to left off Jose Alvarez (1-3) before Carlos Gomez turned an attempted sacrifice into a bunt single. Desmonds single gave the Rangers (89-62) their 20th last at-bat victory and they improved to 35-10 in one-run games.Nomar Mazara also homered for the Rangers, who cut their magic number to four in pursuit of their second consecutive division title. Second-place Seattle was playing at home against Toronto.Play it straight, just trying to play the same way weve been playing all year, Desmond said about being close to clinching. Its been working. No need to change it now.Closer Sam Dyson (3-2) worked a scoreless ninth for the victory after starter Martin Perez went seven innings and Matt Bush worked a perfect eighth.Alvarez, the sixth Angels pitcher, had gotten out of a bases-loaded jam in the eighth following a 38-minute rain delay, two innings after Rangers manager Jeff Banister was ejected for arguing when a replay challenge overturned an out and led to an Angels run.Yunel Escobar was thrown out by several feet trying to stretch his hit into a triple in the sixth, then motioned toward the outfield. Manager Mike Scioscia challenged the ball had become lodged underneath the padding on the wall in right-center field and should have been ruled dead, as per the ground rules for the Rangers ballpark.We thought that someone put their hands up like it was out of play. I think thats what (Escobar) saw, Scioscia said. He kind of stutter-stepped and slowed down.Banister was ejected when he came out to get an explanation and kept questioning crew chief and second base umpire Joe West after Escobar was put at second base. The replay showed right fielder Mazara played the ball and never indicated it was wedged under the padding.From the infield you cant tell if its stuck. ... But when we went to replay, they said it stuck. So its plain and simple a ground-rule double, West told a pool reporter after the game.I had an outfielder who felt like the ball was not lodged. If you look at the video, the ball was still spinning, Banister said. In my estimation, that is not a lodged baseball. But thats not my call.Mike Trout followed with a triple into the right-field corner to tie the game 1-1. The Angels then went ahead in the seventh when Jefry Marte was hit by a pitch and scored on a two-out double by Carlos Perez.Texas got even on Andrus sixth homer, a two-out solo shot in the seventh that just cleared the 8-foot wall in center.ANOTHER EJECTIONRangers 1B Mitch Moreland was ejected after taking a called third strike to end the fourth inning, on a pitch that appeared to be well outside. While he had some words with home plate umpire Kerwin Danley as he walked back to the dugout, there were no demonstrative actions by Moreland before his first ejection in his 764 career games.SHORT HOPSRangers 3B Adrian Beltre had two hits, giving him 2,931 for his career. He passed Rogers Hornsby for 37th on the career list, and is one behind Willie Keeler. ... Mazaras 19 homers are the most by a Rangers rookie since 2003.RANGERS ROTATIONDerek Holland will pitch Wednesday for the Rangers, and Cole Hamels and Yu Darvish will both get extra rest before pitching this weekend in Oakland after an off day Thursday. That also lines them up to start the first two postseason games for Texas.TRAINERS ROOMAngels: Starting pitcher Jhouyls Chacin was struck on the left shin by a hard comebacker in the fourth. The ball ricocheted to first baseman C.J. Cron for the second out in the inning. Chacin remained on the ground for several minutes, then made a few warmup tosses before staying in the game. Chacin allowed one run over five innings while throwing 91 pitches, 29 after getting hit.Rangers: Andrus was struck directly on his right (throwing) elbow by Chacins pickoff attempt when diving back into second while a baserunner in the third inning.UP NEXTAngels: Rookie right-hander Daniel Wright (0-3, 7.04 ERA) is still seeking his first MLB victory. He made his MLB debut with Cincinnati earlier this season.Rangers: Texas has won seven of the last 10 games started by A.J. Griffin (7-4, 4.78 ERA). The right-handers Texas debut was a win at the Angels on April 8. Cheap Nike Air Max 90 . Team physician Dr. Steve Traina performed the surgery Friday.

Cheap Air Max Authentic . Its 1987 and a Brazilian playmaker, known as Mirandinha, is being paraded around St James Park to the passionate Newcastle fans.Formula One is still in preliminary discussions over whether to implement a new penalty system that would in essence punish drivers for each infringement until they total too many points and get hit with a race ban. Motor sports governing body, FIA, has not presented an official format describing how the system would work. Drivers, however, already have some opinions on the issue. "I dont like it. I dont know, maybe Im a little bit too old fashioned," three-time defending champion Sebastian Vettel said during the Spanish Grand Prix recently. "I think from a drivers point of view, weve been pushing for penalties and right now we are probably in a situation where we have more penalties than we would like, so its a little bit of a vicious circle." Last season, French driver Romain Grosjean was given a one-race ban for causing a crash at the Spa GP that sent Fernando Alonso, Lewis Hamilton and Sergio Perez off the track at the first corner. The Lotus driver was involved in several crashes by driving too aggressively into the first corner, earning him a reputation as a reckless driver. Grosjean, who has contained his aggression this season, is wary about the plan coming into fruition. "For the time being its only been a supposition. Well have to see how its put into place and what the possibilities are," Grosjean said. "You cant lose points for driving too fast in the pit lane or things like that. So the catalogue (of rules), if it were to happen, would need to be properly established." Drivers remain somewhat in the dark about the proposals. A race ban could happen, for example, if a driver accumulated 12 penalty points. "Until they come up with a proper system and we understand how its going to work, its hard to really know if its going to be a good or bad thing," Toro Rosso driver Daniel Ricciardo said. "In some respects it would be nice to know what a penalty is. Instead of: Will I get a drive-through? Will I get a 10-place grid penalty for doing something wrong?" There were other incidents of dangerous driving last season with Hamilton and Feelipe Massa right on the limit when they drove against each other.dddddddddddd But defining what is punishable confuses drivers. "I think you have the potential of (penalty) points for some things that are not entirely in our hands and at the end of the day the consequence could be very big," Vettel said. "I dont know if thats the idea. If you want to adapt a system that everybody uses on the road, there might be some logic behind it, but at the end of the day we are not driving on the road, we are racing." At this seasons Bahrain Grand Prix, McLaren driver Sergio Perez twice bumped into teammate Jenson Button as they scrapped for points. In theory, Perez would have received a penalty point under the proposed new rules. Three-time former champion Niki Lauda agrees with Vettel and is aghast at the idea of the system. "There has to be some kind of penalties for mistakes but I think its completely wrong for Formula One (to) use the same kind of penalties we have on the road, which I think is ridiculous," Lauda told The Associated Press at the Spanish GP. Penalizing drivers too much will lessen the thrill of the sport which is naturally shrouded in danger. "Its sort of like giving the guys -- whoevers controlling it -- an excuse to hand out more penalties," Ricciardo said. "I think weve got to be careful not to .. you know, we still want to see racing. We still want to see cars get close and race hard. We dont want to see old ladies driving, we still want to see young, aggressive kids." Ricciardo said he fears the system could lead to excessive scrutiny. "Sometimes you have to say: Its a pure racing incident and not investigate all the time," Ricciardo said. "Its going to be very complex because then youve got things like an unsafe pit release (which has) got nothing to do with the driver." Dishing out penalty points could decide races and even championships, opening the door to endless sanctions and appeals. "I dont know whose idea it was. Its ridiculous, I think," Lauda said. "Racing is racing." ' ' '
