ARLINGTON, Texas -- Elvis Andrus's defense hit a slight bump against Oakland with two errors in two games.
He made up for it with a game-saving, over-the-shoulder catch in the fifth inning of Wednesday's 3-1 victory over the A's at Rangers Ballpark.

Ross Wolf was able to get another popup to Andrus and a groundout to first base to get out of the jam, lining him up for his first major league win.
The 30-year-old Wolf, who hadn't pitched in the big leagues since 2010, wasn't lost on the meaning of the catch.
"It was awesome," Wolf said. "I didn't see it until I saw the replay."
Andrus, who had made one error in 45 games, made one on a ground ball that just beat him on Tuesday and on a missed flip on a throw trying to start a double play Wednesday.
Nobody remembered either mishap after Andrus' spectacular play.
“Every time someone hits a ball around me, I think I can get it,” Andrus said. “I was really happy I could make that play.”
