Player of the Game: Furthering the theory that Joey Gallo is a second half guy, today Gallo went 3-for-5 with two runs scored, four RBI, and two more dingers to bring his 2018 total to 31. Gallo’s batting average is back up over .200 so that should, ironically, satiate the Facebook crowd.
Up Next: The Rangers travel to New York to take on the Yankees with Ariel Jurado set to make the start in the opener against LHP J.A. Happ for New York. First pitch from Yankee Stadium is scheduled for 6:05 pm CT.
