MLB: Texas Rangers at Houston Astros Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Kyle Gibson pitched his first career MLB shutout and Joey Gallo pushed them over the top with a two out ninth inning RBI double.

Nick Solak has roughly divided his time in thirds between second base, left field and center, and Chris Woodward says Leody Taveras could be valuable next year even if he isn’t hitting much.

Could Kyle Gibson’s problems have been simply that he needed to change his stance a little bit when pitching from the stretch?

The Houston Astros have been kicking the crap out of the Rangers the last four years, but they will soon be having to make difficult decisions about core players leaving in free agency and payroll flexibility while the Rangers are a blank slate.
