Rangers sneak past Pirates

Vladimir Guerrero hit a walkoff single to give the Texas Rangers a 6-5 win and a sweep of the Pittsburgh Pirates Thursday night at Rangers Ballpark.

The Rangers won the game as -280 favorites, and the 11 runs made it OVER the posted over/under (10.5) set by sportsbooks.

Justin Smoak drove in a pair of runs to lead the Rangers. Frank Francisco pitched a scoreless ninth to earn the win in relief.

Steven Jackson surrendered two hits and one run in the ninth to suffer the Pirates loss.
