Rangers’ Rally Falls Short in Loss to Blue Jays

ARLINGTON, Texas — Adam Lind and Rod Barajas each homered twice, with Lind's first career grand slam helping power Toronto to a big early lead before the Blue Jays held on for a 18-10 victory over the slipping Texas Rangers on Monday night.

Lind had a career-high eight RBIs, matching the most in the majors this season when he hit a solo homer and a three-run double in Toronto's seven-run ninth that finally put the game out of reach after Texas had rallied from an 11-run deficit to make it 11-10.

The Rangers (72-58), who came up short of their largest comeback victory in team history, wrapped up a losing August and dropped four games behind idle Boston in the AL wild-card race.
