Profar Keeps Rangers In Wildcard Race With Walk-Off HR

ARLINGTON, Texas — Jurickson Profar watched the first four-error inning for Texas from the bench.

When he got the call as a pinch-hitter in the ninth inning, the rookie erased that bad memory and gave the Rangers at least another day of realistic playoff hopes.

Profar homered leading off the ninth, and the Rangers beat the Los Angeles Angels with a walk-off homer for the fourth straight time at home in a 6-5 victory Thursday night.

The Rangers matched a win by Cleveland for the third straight night to stay within a game of the Indians for the second wild-card spot in the American League.
