Rodriguez solid in debut, but Rangers lose 3-2 to Angels

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Wandy Rodriguez gave the Texas Rangers exactly what they were looking for in his first American League start. He pitched long enough to hand a lead over to the bullpen before rookie Keone Kela made a costly mistake.

David Freese hit a two-run homer off the right-hander, just in time for Garrett Richards to get credit for his first victory since last August, and the Rangers were beaten 3-2 by the Los Angeles Angels on Friday night.

Rodriguez allowed a run and five hits with five strikeouts in five innings. The 36-year-old lefty escaped a bases-loaded jam in the second when he retired Erick Aybar on a line drive to center field after giving up two walks and then hitting Freese with a pitch.
