ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Delino DeShields scored the tiebreaking run on a throwing error in the seventh, two innings after going home on a balk, and the Texas Rangers beat the San Diego Padres 4-3 on Wednesday night.
    
In a game that the Rangers were 1 of 13 with runners in scoring position, they also scored on a wild pitch.
    
DeShields drew a one-out walk from reliever Brad Hand (0-2) in the seventh before Shin-Soo Choo also walked. Elvis Andrus then hit a potential double-play grounder, but second baseman Yangervis Solarte's wide throw to first went into the camera well.
    
Jeremy Jeffress (1-2) allowed singles to the Nos. 8 and 9 hitters to start the top of the seventh after replacing Yu Darvish, but got out of the inning without allowing a run. Matt Bush worked the ninth for his second save in three chances.
