I don't know what happened in the 2nd inning but Alexi Ogando found some sort of magic after loading the bases on what felt like a million pitches. After wiggling out of trouble with consecutive strikeouts to end the 2nd, Ogando went on to retire 12 straight and left after throwing 6 innings of two-hit shutout baseball. That was needed.
And, just like that, the Rangers have their biggest lead in the division since the 6th.
Magic Number: Michael Young
