Yovani Gallardo went seven innings and didn't allow a run against the best offense in baseball. The rotation of Gallardo, Nick Martinez, Colby Lewis, Wandy Rodriguez, and Chi Chi Gonzalez have now had a quality start in 11 straight outings. That's a franchise record. That's like Wandy Rodriguez getting 34 outs in a row levels of weird.

Player of the Game: After slumping to begin the season, the Rangers sent young second baseman Rougned Odor to Triple-A to regain his swagger. After a month in Round Rock where Odor hit around .350 and grew more confident in the field, he returned tonight and went 3-3 with two RBI in the win for Texas.
