Andrus overslides the bag in the sixth

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Ranger reserves Elvis Andrus and Ian Kinsler are now in the game. Andrus came in as a pinch runner for Derek Jeter in the sixth inning and appeared to have stolen second base.

But he slid past the bag and was tagged out before he could get his foot back on it. Kinsler came into the game in the bottom of the fifth defensively.

Andrus had talked Monday about staying aggressive on the bases, but getting smarter too. He got a good enough jump on that one, but didn't stay on the bag. All part of the learning process.
