ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Torii Hunter hit a two-run double with two outs in the ninth inning, and the Los Angeles Angels boosted their wild-card chances by rallying past the AL West-leading Texas Rangers 5-4 in the opener of a day-night doubleheader Sunday.

Hunter's double into the left-center gap came off Joe Nathan (3-5), who blew a save for only the third time in 39 chances this season.

The big hit by Hunter came right after Nathan struck out Mike Trout, who earlier in the game became the first major league rookie with 30 homers and 40 stolen bases in the same season.

Los Angeles (88-70) moved within two games of Oakland (90-68) for the AL's second wild card. The A's played at home later Sunday against Seattle.

Texas (92-66) saw its division lead over the A's cut to two games with four to play.
