Blue Jays lose to Rangers in 14th

This one went so long the Toronto Blue Jays went through their entire bullpen and then had to dip into their starting rotation.

And after they squandered chance after chance to score Wednesday night, they eventually ran out of Houdini-like escapes on the mound. Finally it was A.J. Burnett who buckled in the 14th, coughing up the go-ahead run on a wild pitch and some insurance on Josh Hamilton's RBI double in a 7-5 loss to the Texas Rangers.

For a while it looked like the Blue Jays (8-7) were set to commit some grand theft by stealing a victory from the Rangers (6-9), whom they swept over the weekend in Arlington.
