ARLINGTON, Texas -- Leonys Martin hit a three-run homer in the 10th inning and the Texas Rangers, after trailing four times, pulled out a 14-11 victory over the Los Angeles Angels that took nearly five hours Tuesday night.
Daniel Stange (0-1), making his Angels debut and his first major league appearance since 2010, walked Mitch Moreland and Geovany Soto to start the 10th. David Murphy then reached on a fielder's choice before Los Angeles put five players in the infield with only two outfielders.

That alignment didn't matter when Martin sent his sixth homer of the season to the opposite field, barely clearing the 14-foot wall and just inside the left-field foul pole.
Closer Joe Nathan (2-1), the sixth Rangers pitcher, worked around a leadoff walk in the 10th for a scoreless inning.
It was the second night in a row Texas had a game-ending homer.
