Another game emblematic of the 2016 season of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. A come-from-ahead loss, and sweaty palms hitting with runners in scoring position, all of which described the Halos’ 5-4 loss to the Texas Rangers Tuesday night in Arlington.

The Angels blew a 3-1 lead and batted only 2-for-13 with runners as far as second base in falling to 65-86 and deeper into last place in the American League West. The Ranger win also reduced their magic number to two.

One other thing stood out: Angel reliever Brett Oberholtzer and manager Mike Scioscia were both ejected in the eighth inning after Oberholzter plunked Elvis Andrus in the hip.

The series continues Wednesday with Jered Weaver (11-12) making the start for the Orange County team.
