ARLINGTON Delino DeShields Jersey , Texas (AP) Albert Pujols keeps climbing up the career hits list and hurting the Texas Rangers in their home park.Pujols drove in a season-high four runs, Shohei Ohtani hit a three-run homer and the Los Angeles Angels beat Texas 11-7 on a rainy Saturday night.Pujols went 3 for 4 to tie 19th-century star Cap Anson for 23rd with 3,081 hits. His 633rd homer was his 16th in 59 games in Arlington.This is a tremendous offensive ballpark, Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. Albert swings the bat pretty well wherever he goes.Pujols hit a solo home run in the second inning and a two-run single in the third against Rangers starter Martin Perez.I threw a bad pitch to Pujols, and he hit a home run off me, Perez said.Pujols singled home another run in the seventh against losing pitcher Eddie Butler (2-3) for a 7-6 lead.Ohtani, a left-handed batter, then came on as a pinch hitter and homered to center field before Taylor Ward hit his first major league homer to complete the five-run inning against right-hander Butler.Shohei coming off the bench was a huge hit, Scioscia said.Winning pitcher Cam Bedrosian (5-2), the second of five Angels pitchers, got two outs in the sixth.Los Angeles took a 6-2 lead with two outs in the fourth on a three-run double by David Fletcher.Texas came back with four runs with two outs in the bottom of the inning to tie the game against Angels starter Andrew Heaney. Odor singled home a run and the second scored as Andrus struck out but reached base on a wild pitch. Adrian Beltre drove in two runs with a bloop single.I was frustrated, Heaney said. In the fourth inning, a walk to the 9-hole hitter and let it snowball from there.Odor, Elvis Andrus and Joey Gallo each had three hits for the Rangers.With two outs and first base open, Pujols struck again in the third with his two-run single for a 3-2 lead.The two-out RBIs, the double down the line and then the slider to Pujols in that situation where he gave up the runs, Texas manager Jeff Banister said, it just seemed to be a lot of pitches mid-across and tight.TRAINERS ROOMAngels: Before the game, manager Mike Scioscia said he hadnt seen information about RHP/DH Ohtanis bullpen session Saturday. Hes scheduled for another bullpen. His workout in Arizona will probably be more aggressive Joey Gallo Jersey , Scioscia said.Rangers: LHP Mike Minor (stiff back) was scratched from Fridays start, but has played catch and said, Ill pitch in a couple days. . RHP Chi Chi Gonzalez, who underwent Tommy John surgery in July 2017, made his first appearance since 2016 on Friday night in the rookie Class Arizona League. He retired all six batters he faced, striking out two, and is expected to continue pitching in Arizona.RAIN, RAIN GO AWAYThe game and the ceremony honoring Rangers RHP Bartolo Colon were delayed 2 hours, 26 minutes because of a downpour that began just minutes before the scheduled 7:05 CDT start. Rain fell again in the first through sixth innings. The game ended at 12:59 a.m.It was sloppy out there, Scioscia said. We were a little afraid at times.EL PRESIDENTE HONORS BIG SEXYIn a pregame ceremony, Dennis El Presidente Martinez recognized Colon for breaking his career record for wins by a Latin American player with Colons 246th victory on Aug. 7.Martinez helped Vernon Wells Sr. unveil Wells original artwork with images of Colon in a Rangers uniform and portraits of Martinez and Juan Marichal, whose record Martinez broke in 1998. Martinez then raised Colons hand to recognize that he was the champion.ANDRUS TIES, SETS RECORDSElvis Andruss first-inning single extended his hitting streak at Globe Life Park to 37 games, every game he has played this season, to tie Rafael Palmeiro (2003) and Michael Young (2009) for the stadium record. With a streak of 44 consecutive games since last September, Andrus broke Julio Francos 1993 record for the longest home-game streak in franchise history.UP NEXTAngels: RHP Jaime Barria (8-7, 3.50) will try to help Los Angeles gain a split of the four-game series. Hes 2-0 against Texas this season with a 0.82 ERA in 11 innings.Rangers: RHP Yovani Gallardo (7-2, 5.33) will start with RHP Bartolo Colon (7-10, 5.19) bothered by what manager Jeff Banister called a little stiffness. CINCINNATI (AP) Like his longtime broadcasting cohort used to say http://www.rangersfanproshop.com/authentic-matt-moore-jersey , Marty Brennaman is rounding third and heading for home.The Reds play-by-play announcer said Wednesday that hell retire after the 2019 season, his 46th in Cincinnati. His career started with a chance to call baseball history. It entered a final season with deep sighs and emotional moments.Its something Ive thought about a long time, Brennaman said, calling it one of his most difficult days. Its something Ive anguished over more than anything Ive anguished over in my life. I wake up at night, at 4 oclock in the morning, and I stare off into the darkness and think about what Im doing.Brennaman, 76, said he wanted to retire while hes healthy and can do things hes always wished.His announcement came one day after Pirates color commentator Steve Blass announced this will be his final season of broadcasting, his 34th with the team. Blass called it time for me to stop and smell the roses.Brennaman joined the Reds broadcast team in 1974, replacing the popular Al Michaels. In his second spring training game, Brennaman accidentally referred to the Reds home field in Tampa, Florida, as Al Michaels Field instead of Al Lopez Field.His first regular-season game at Riverfront Stadium provided a chance to call Hank Aarons 714th career homer, which tied Babe Ruths record. Brennaman said color commentator Joe Nuxhall turned to him after the inning and asked his new partner, What the heck do you do for an encore? I said, I dont know.'Brennaman and Nuxhall became an endearing broadcast duo for 31 years from 1974-2004. Theyd talk about the Big Red Machines exploits and compare notes on garden tomatoes. Fans referred to them simply as Marty and Joe.Throughout Reds country, Marty and Joe were a staple of summertime, fans tuning in not just for the love of the Reds but because they loved Marty and Joe, owner Bob Castellini said.Each of them developed a distinctive sign-off line. Nuxhall Ferguson Jenkins Jersey , a former Reds pitcher, would say hes rounding third and heading for home, a saying thats remembered in lights outside Great American Ball Park. Brennaman would end each win by declaring that this one belongs to the Reds.One of the highlights of Brennamans career was receiving the Ford C. Frick Award in 2000 at the Baseball Hall of Fame, the fourth Reds announcer to receive the broadcasting award along with Red Barber, Al Helfer and Russ Hodges.In addition to his work with Reds radio and television, Brennaman has worked NCAA Tournament games, including 11 Final Fours. His son, Thom, also is a Reds broadcaster.Brennaman has thought about retirement for several years. He talked about retirement with Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully, who explained that he felt it was time to step away after 67 years in the booth.Brennaman came to the same conclusion about himself in the last few months.He had maintained that whenever he decided to leave, he would simply retire after a season in order to avoid a farewell tour. Others convinced him that it would be beneficial for those who know him to have a chance to honor him.Im honored by it, but Im also going to be very uncomfortable about it, Brennaman said.After wrapping up a question-and-answer session, Brennaman expressed relief.Is that it? All right, he said, with a deep sigh. Thats one of the toughest days of my life. Ive gotten over it now.
