ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Hunter Pence had a two-run single in the seventh inning, Shin Soo-Choo homered and Drew Smyly got his first win in almost three years as the Texas Rangers rallied for a 4-3 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Friday night.

Smyly (1-3) went six innings to get his first win since Sept. 13, 2016 — 32 months — when he was with Tampa Bay. The left-hander, who allowed three runs on five hits, missed the last two seasons due to Tommy John elbow surgery.

The Angels committed two errors in the seventh that led to the go-ahead run. Choo led off the inning by reaching on an error by shortstop Zack Cozart and advanced to second when Logan Forsythe was walked. After the runners advanced on a ground ball, they scored on Pence's line-drive single to center off Cam Bedrosian (1-3) that Mike Trout misplayed, allowing Pence to advance to second. It was Trout's first error since 2017.
