Rangers score in 11th to down ClevelandAug 6, 2011 - 4:22 AM
The Rangers clawed back from a 7-2 deficit and sent the game to extra innings on Michael Young's two-run homer off Chris Perez in the ninth inning.
The AL-West leaders continued to fight with two outs in the 11th. Andrus extended the inning with a bunt single, went to second on a Rafael Perez (4-2) wild pitch and never stopped running when Josh Hamilton chopped a bouncer to short.
Asdrubal Cabrera charged the ball and threw quickly to first, but Hamilton beat the throw with a head-first slide. Andrus sped around third and continued towards home, sliding in front of Matt LaPorta's throw to punctuate the win.
