ARLINGTON, Texas (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — DJ Peters' pinch-hit single drove home the go-ahead run in the sixth inning and the Texas Rangers beat former teammate Lance Lynn and the AL Central-leading Chicago White Sox 2-1.
Chicago's magic number over Cleveland to clinch the division remained at five.
The White Sox were managed by bench coach Miguel Cairo while Tony La Russa served an automatic one-game suspension for reliever Mike Wright Jr. intentionally hitting Los Angeles Angels star Shohei Ohtani with a pitch on Thursday.
Wright appealed his three-game suspension. Five Texas pitchers combined on a three-hitter in ending a three-game skid. Yasmani Grandal hit his 21st home run in the Chicago sixth.
The Rangers will go head-to-head with the White Sox once more Sunday at 1:35 p.m.
