ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Michael Young broke out of a deep slump
with a game-ending RBI single, rookie Brandon Boggs hit a three-run
homer and the Texas Rangers rallied twice for a 5-4 victory over
the Atlanta Braves on Thursday.
With the score 4-all, Ian Kinsler led off the ninth with a
double off Blaine Boyer (1-5). Chris Shelton popped out on a bunt
attempt before Young lined a single to right off Jeff Bennett.
Kinsler scored without a throw to the plate, and Young, 1-for-31
heading into the ninth, was mobbed on the field by his teammates.
Atlanta's Chipper Jones went 0-for-4 as his major league-leading
batting average fell below .400 for the first time since April 12.
He's hitting .394.
Rangers starter Scott Feldman gave up two runs and five hits in
seven innings, but Texas closer C.J. Wilson faltered for the second
Wilson was the losing pitcher in Atlanta's 5-2 victory on
Wednesday night when his two-base throwing error led to three
ninth-inning runs, and on Thursday Wilson allowed two runs and two
hits while getting just one out.
