Holy dong explosion!

This win was big because it moved the Rangers back into a tie with Tampa Bay for the top spot in the AL Wild Card standings. Another important aspect is that the win gives the Rangers a season series win (four wins to three) over the Rays. Now, should these teams end up with the same record after game 162, the Wild Card play-in game would be played in Arlington, TX.

Wait, is that a good thing?
