85-71 - Rangers Handle Business Against Astros as Rios Hits For Cycle

Nellie who? - Jim Cowsert-USA TODAY Sports

Fun fact to know and tell: The Rangers had only one player hit for the cycle in franchise history until 2004 - spanning 32 seasons. Since then, they've had six players hit for the cycle in ten years

12 runs, eh? That was cathartic.

The Rangers win tonight pulls them to within a game of Cleveland for the final spot in the American League playoffs with six games remaining.

Player of the Game: Adam Rosales.









Just kidding. Alex Rios became the 7th Ranger all time to hit for the cycle tonight. He did it in four at-bats. It was neat.

Also, Derek Holland pitched a complete game shutout and that's pretty good.
