ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Texas Rangers have never finished with the best record in the American League in their history.Theyre in position to do so with four home games to play following a 6-4 win Tuesday night over the Milwaukee Brewers thanks in part to a pair of ex-Brewers.Carlos Gomez, traded to Houston at the 2015 trade deadline and acquired by Texas five weeks ago, hit a mammoth three-run home run in the third inning. Jonathan Lucroy, dealt to the Rangers at this years deadline, hit a go-ahead, two-run double in the sixth inning.The Rangers now have a half-game lead over Boston for the best record in the American League. The Red Sox lost 6-4 to the Yankees on Tuesday.Its a distinct advantage, Lucroy said of home-field advantage through the league playoffs -- with the AL already owning home field for the World Series. Anytime youre in a playoff series, you want to play at home. Thats our goal right now. I know thats what Im playing for.Lucroys hit made a winner of reliever Tony Barnette (7-3). Barnette worked one scoreless inning, leaving runners at second and third in the sixth. It was his first appearance since Sept. 4, having been sidelined with a strained oblique.It was impressive for Tony with the layoff, the injury, the pitches that he made, the ability to work his way out of the inning, manager Jeff Banister said.Sam Dyson earned his 37th save, striking out Domingo Santana to leave runners at first and third in the ninth inning. Five Rangers relievers worked 4 2/3 innings following starter A.J. Griffin and built the bullpens scoreless streak to 24 2/3 innings though it allowed an inherited run to score.Lucroy, who played six-plus seasons for the Brewers, pulled a pitch from Jimmy Nelson (8-16) down the left-field line into the corner.Nelson leads the National League in losses and walks. Three of the four batters that he walked on Tuesday scored.Extremely frustrated, Nelson said of his season. All I can do is trust that itll turn around.Griffin lasted only 4 1/3 innings, allowing four runs on seven hits. That included his 27th and 28th home runs in 119 innings this season.Gomez has seven homers in 30 games for Texas after hitting five in 85 games for the Astros. The homer traveled an estimated 444 feet to left field.Its only 30 games that Ive been playing here, and I have some sensations that I never had, Gomez said. I just come to the plate with that confidence.CHOO VERDICT COMING SOONBanister said a decision will likely be made either Wednesday night or early Thursday whether to return Shin-Soo Choo (fractured left forearm) to the active roster for the final regular-season series against Tampa Bay. Choo is rehabbing with the Rangers instructional league team in Arizona.Is he physically capable, Banister asked, and do we feel the rhythm and timing is everything that it takes to play at this level?This is Choos fourth stint on the disabled list this season, limiting him to 45 games. He leads the team in on-base percentage at .369.SHORT HOPSCarlos Beltran, 39, stole a base for the first time since 2014 and made a diving catch in right field. ... Texas extended its majors leading total for come-from-behind wins to 48. . Rougned Odor is hitless in his last 22 at-bats.TRAINERS ROOMBrewers: Manager Craig Counsell said he gave LF Ryan Braun (sore wrist) a day off on Tuesday and that Braun should play in Wednesdays series finale.UP NEXTBrewers RHP Chase Anderson (9-11), a native Texan who lives in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, is 5-1 with a 2.30 ERA over his last 11 starts.If Rangers LHP Cole Hamels (15-5) pitches at least 6 1/3 innings in what should be his regular-season finale, hell reach 200 for the season for the eighth time in 11 years.

UA Mens Under Armour Scorpio Running Shoes White/Roayl/Gold . -- The boos poured down on Tom Brady and the New England Patriots at the end of a horrible first half. PITTSBURGH -- Andrew McCutchen figured if he kept hitting the ball hard that something good would eventually happen. After flying out to the warning track twice earlier in the game, McCutchen homered leading off the bottom of the 12th inning to lift the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 4-3 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night. McCutchen hit a 2-2 pitch from Mike Fiers (0-2) into the right-centre field stands for his fifth home run of the season and the fourth game-ending shot of his career. McCutchen sprinted out of the box upon contact and quickly made his way around the bases, raising his right fist in the air between first and second base. "After the other two balls I hit, I wasnt taking anything for granted," he said. "I didnt know if it was going to go out or not when I hit it, so I just started running. Once I saw it was a home run, I just kept running." McCutchen hit a drive to deep centre field in the first inning with two runners on base that centre fielder Carlos Gomez caught just in front of the fence. In the seventh, right fielder Norichika Aoki hauled in McCutchens drive to the 375-foot sign in right-centre field. "I thought both of them were gone but I guess its the cool weather keeping the balls in the park," McCutchen said. "Its been a cool spring and the ball doesnt seem to be carrying anywhere. Summer is just around the corner so hopefully the weather will warm up and balls will start flying pretty soon." Pittsburghs Jose Tabata had three hits, Russell Martin hit two doubles and Neil Walker had two hits. Vin Mazzaro (2-0) pitched two scoreless innings to help the Pirates beat the Brewers for the just the second time in their last 12 meetings. Milwaukee had won five straight games at PNC Park. "Everyone knows the success the Brewers have had against us, its like they have a horseshoe (in their back pocket) every time they play us," McCutchen said. "Its awesome to be able to scratch out a win like this against them." Ryan Braun had three hits, including a pair of doubles, for the Brewers after sitting out Monday nights win over the Pirates with stiffness in his neck and upper back. He also made a diving catch to rob John McDonald of extra bases leading off the 11th inning. Aoki also had three hits for Milwaukee, Gomez added two hits and Jean Segura hit a home run and drove in two runs. "Its tough to lose when you have a lead late and cant hold onto it," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. "We kind of let this one slip away." Milwaukee starterr Kyle Lohse did not receive a decision after losing his previous three starts.ddddddddddddHe gave up three runs, five hits and five walks in 5 2-3 innings while striking out three. The five walks were as many as he had allowed all season coming into the game. Lohse is 1-4 in eight starts after signing a three-year, $33-million contract late in spring training as a free agent. The Brewers have scored only 15 total runs in his eight starts. Jeff Locke, who has won his last three decisions for the Pirates, pitched six innings and allowed three runs on seven hits with one walk and six strikeouts. Pittsburgh had a chance to win the game in the bottom of the ninth when Tabata doubled with one out and McCutchen was intentionally walked. However, Alfredo Figardo induced Garrett Jones to ground into an inning-ending double play. The Pirates tied the game at 3-3 in the eighth inning on Martins run-scoring double off John Axford. Walker led off the inning with a looping single to left field and then scored all the way from first with one out when Martin doubled into the left-field corner. "I made one mistakes and it cost me and it seems to be happening just about every time I pitch," said Axford, whose ERA is 9.20 in 18 games. "I threw the ball well. I felt really good and then it was one mistake pitch and they score a run. Its frustrating, Im not going to lie to you." Walker also scored in the sixth to get the Pirates within a run. He walked, moved to third on Martins first double of the game and scored on Clint Barmes groundout. "It seems like every other night, somebody is coming through with a big hit late in the game," Martin said. "Theres a lot of fight in this team. We never feel were out of a game." NOTES: Home plate umpire Fieldin Culbreth was forced to leave the game in the top of the 11th inning when he was struck in the collarbone by a foul ball off the bat of Milwaukee 1B Yuniesky Betancourt.
