The Rangers allowed nine runs in today's game after having allowed just six runs in their previous five games combined. It's probably a good thing then that the Rangers scored a season high 15 runs as they took the series from the Angels and reached the seven games above .500 mark for the first time in 2016.
Every member of the Rangers' lineup delivered at least one RBI and scored at least once. If you missed the back and forth, high scoring games they played at The Ballpark in the 1990s, this one was for you.
