Geovany Soto hit a three-run home run off of Justin Verlander

USA TODAY Sports

The schedule showed Yu Darvish vs Justin Verlander and it happened exactly like you'd expect. The Rangers won 10-4.

The Tigers sent eight men to the plate in the 3rd, scoring three runs. The Rangers batted around and scored seven runs in the 3rd (Including Geovany Soto hitting a three-run home run off of Justin Verlander). The 3rd inning itself lasted nearly an hour as each team's ace labored. I guess that's why they play the game.

But, the Rangers won and they are now the best that they have ever been through 41 games in franchise history. No other Rangers team in history has ever been 27-14.
