MLB Game Recap: Houston Astros (4) vs. Texas Rangers (5) - Date: 9/25/2020 Rangers keep Astros waiting for playoffs with 5-4 win in 10ARLINGTON, Texas Ryan Pressly had no interest in waiting to see if the Astros would get the help they needed to clinch the last spot in the expanded American League playoffs after the Houston reliever couldn't finish it himself when he was a strike away.Joey Gallo's run-scoring fielder's choice in the 10th inning completed a 5-4 victory for Texas as the Rangers rallied from a run down in each of the last two innings, starting with Ronald Guzman's two-out, two-strike solo homer off Pressly in the ninth.Now Houston has to wait to see if the Los Angeles Angels lose at the Dodgers. A loss by the Angels, and the Astros (29-29) clinch second place in the AL West. Football Picks. Their three-year reign in the division was already ended by Oakland in the pandemic-shortened season.''Who cares?'' said Pressly, who had his fourth blown save in 16 chances. ''We've got to take care of business first.'' The loss meant Houston had to wait to see if Dusty Baker would become the first manager to lead five different franchises to the playoffs.Hired just before spring training after AJ Hinch was fired almost immediately after Major League Baseball suspended him for a year over Astros' sign-stealing scandal, Baker has already taken San Francisco, the Chicago Cubs, Cincinnati and Washington to the postseason.''We were so close to clinching it,'' Baker said. ''It doesn't hurt any more than the rest of them. But there's nothing we can do now.'' Rookie catcher Sam Huff homered twice, his second and third, for the first two Rangers runs. Best Sports Picks Service. The 22-year-old Huff is the second-youngest Texas catcher with a multihomer game, behind Jarrod Saltalamacchia in a 30-3 win over Baltimore in 2007.''I want to keep proving and keep going and do my thing,'' Huff said. ''I'm trying to stay consistent, have a good thought and have fun.'' Alex Bregman homered in the sixth and had a sacrifice fly that put the Astros ahead 4-3 in the top of the 10th. Houston's first run came on George Springer's RBI triple.Nick Solak matched Bregman's sacrifice fly to get the last-place Rangers even in the bottom of the 10th. Gallo's grounder was fielded by Jose Altuve, but the second baseman's desperate throw home was wide, allowing pinch-runner Andrew Romine to score.Bregman was as disinterested as Pressly about what was going on two time zones away.''I'm going to go to bed,'' Bregman said. ''I'm going to call my family and just try to get a good night's sleep and come back ready to play tomorrow.'' Enoli Paredes (3-3) walked Isiah Kiner-Falefa to start the Texas 10th, and the bases were loaded after first baseman Yuli Gurriel's throw to second was wide on a sharp grounder from Willie Calhoun.Brett Martin (1-1) got the win, giving up a single to Kyle Tucker after Bregman's sacrifice before getting a popout from Gurriel, who put the Astros ahead 3-2 in the eighth on a soft single inside the bag at first with Guzman playing well off the line on a shift.Guzman's fourth homer of the season barely cleared the wall down the line in right.''It was right where I wanted to throw it, actually,'' Pressly said. ''Your team goes out there and gives you a chance to win and you come in a get beat on a pitch like that is very frustrating. Flush this out of your brain.'' 3,000 STRAIGHT FOR PA MANChuck Morgan of the Rangers is set to call his 3,000th consecutive game as a major league public address announcer Saturday. Morgan has spent 37 of his 38 seasons with Texas. Football Handicappers. The other was in Kansas City. It's hard for him to call it a celebration in a season without fans.''It would really be much better for me tomorrow night if we had 40,000 people in the ballpark,'' Morgan said. ''I don't like it, but I accept it.'' TRAINER'S ROOMAstros: Baker said C Martin Maldonado got his legs tangled on the final play at the plate, but he hoped he would be OK. Maldonado stayed down on the field as the Rangers celebrated before walking off slowly on his own. ... RHP Josh James was placed on the 10-day injured list for an unspecified reason, and RHP Chase De Jong was brought up from the taxi squad.Rangers: Manager Chris Woodward said rookie 3B Sherten Apostel won't play again this season after leaving Thursday's game with back spasms following an awkward dive to field a ball.UP NEXTThe Astros were waiting for the LA outcome to decide who would start the third game in the four-game series to finish the regular season.
