Rangers keep Astros waiting for playoffs with 5-4 win in 10

Gold Glove Award

By SCHUYLER DIXON

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Joey Gallo kept the Houston Astros from clinching the last playoff spot in the American League playoffs at least temporarily, driving home the winning run on a fielder’s-choice grounder in the 10th inning for a 5-4 Texas Rangers win. The Astros were a strike away from going to the postseason for a franchise-best fourth straight year when Ronald Guzman hit a tying solo home run in the bottom of the ninth off Ryan Pressly. Now Houston has to wait to see if the Los Angeles Angels lose at the Dodgers.
