ARLINGTON http://www.nationalsfanproshop.com/authentic-daniel-murphy-jersey , Texas (AP) — A trifecta for Joey Gallo and Rougned Odor backed an efficient seven innings by Mike Minor as the Texas Rangers won a close game after a pair of lopsided wins.Gallo and Odor both homered for the third straight game, this time in a 3-1 win over the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday night after the Rangers had scored a combined 28 runs to win each of the first two games in the series by at least eight runs.“Both of them are swinging the bat very well, seeing the baseball very well,” manager Jeff Banister said, adding that Odor has been patient at the plate and Gallo has been aggressive in the zone. Gallo hit a scorching liner into the right field seats right after Adrian Beltre started the fourth by reaching on a throwing error by third baseman Renato Nunez. His 29th homer of the season put the Rangers up 2-0 against Baltimore starter Dylan Bundy (7-10).“Getting some pitches to drive, and when he does, he drives them out of the ballpark,” Banister said.“Joey’s been really good at the plate, too, been really focused,” said Odor, who went deep in the eighth with a towering 445-foot solo shot beyond the Rangers bullpen in right-center for his 13th homer. Minor (8-6) threw 63 of his 86 pitches for strikes over seven innings. A full-time reliever last season for Kansas City after missing two whole seasons because of left shoulder surgery, the lefty struck out six without a walk while allowing one run and four hits. He is 2-0 with a 2.50 ERA his last three starts.“We’ve just kind of mixed it up Adam Eaton Jersey , all four pitches, instead of two-pitch mix. I threw more curveballs, more changeups in and out, mixed it up pretty well,” Minor said. “I’m getting better with my pitches every week.”Bundy struck out six and walked two in his six innings. He has allowed 27 homers this season, one more than Kansas City’s Jakob Junis for the most in the majors.“I’m not happy about it at all, but it was a little bit better,” Bundy said. “I only left one ball over the plate instead of three it seems like the past two outings.”WITH THE SAVEJose Leclerc, the expected closer after Keone Kela was traded to Pittsburgh earlier this week, worked a perfect ninth for his first save in five chances.SHORT HOPSOrioles DH Mark Trumbo’s RBI single in the seventh was his 1,000th career hit . He is the 31st active player with at least 1,000 hits and 200 homers (214). … Texas SS Elvis Andrus extended the longest active hitting streak in the majors to 15 games with his double in the first. … Texas has won seven of eight overall.HONORING VLADVladimir Guerrero, whose only season with the Rangers was for their first World Series in 2010 http://www.nationalsfanproshop.com/authentic-max-scherzer-jersey , was honored in a pregame ceremony after his induction last weekend into the Baseball Hall of Fame. Guerrero threw the ceremonial first pitch to Ivan “Pudge” Rodriguez, the former Rangers catcher inducted into the Hall of Fame last year.TRAINER’S ROOMOrioles: OF Craig Gentry, out since late June with a left rib fracture, could start a rehab assignment early next week. Showalter said Gentry is ahead of INF Steve Wilkerson (oblique), who initially was also set to start rehab last week. “I don’t know if I’d call it a setback,” Showalter said. “We just don’t want to push it and say well, here’s the schedule. Let’s see what the players’ bodies are telling us.”Rangers: CF Delino DeShields is on MLB’s seven-day concussion disabled list. The Rangers announced the move Saturday, more than three weeks after DeShields banged the back of his head when trying to make a sliding catch in Boston. He had been scratched from Friday’s lineup because of headaches.UP NEXTRight-hander Drew Hutchison will start the series finale for the Rangers a day after agreeing to a major league contract. The Rangers announced his signing in the eighth inning of Saturday night’s game. It will be his first big league start since 2016 with Pittsburgh. He began this season in the Phillies bullpen but was designated for assignment May 31. He rejected an outright assignment, signed a minor league deal with the Dodgers and was with Triple-A Oklahoma City before requesting and being granted his release last Tuesday. BOSTON (AP) The Boston Red Sox acquired Ian Kinsler from the Los Angeles Angels on Monday night, replacing the injured Dustin Pedroia at second base even as the AL East leaders distance themselves from the New York Yankees – and the rest of baseball, too.Boston will send Triple-A pitchers Ty Buttrey and Williams Jerez to Los Angeles, president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said in the Red Sox clubhouse after they beat Philadelphia 2-1 in 13 innings. The Angels and Red Sox will in effect split the remaining $3,666 Michael Taylor Jersey ,667 on Kinsler’s $11 million contract that expires at the end of the season, with Los Angeles paying Boston $1,833,333.”He’s the closest teammate that I’ve ever had to Dustin Pedroia,” said Red Sox left-hander David Price, who was Kinsler’s teammate with the Tigers when Dombrowski also traded for him there. ”He brings that intensity, that fire every single day. He’s a gamer. He’ll make any team better. I’m very happy we got him.”Angels general manager Billy Eppler said he spoke with Kinsler and thanked him for his time with the team.”That was difficult, but we’re excited about the players we’re getting back and the potential for an impact in the future,” Eppler said in a conference call late Monday night.”There’s a reason people gravitate to this guy. I know I did, and I was only around him less than a calendar year. We have to weigh that impact and the duration of that impact, for the guys returning in this deal.”A four-time All-Star, Kinsler is the third recent acquisition for the Red Sox as Tuesday’s trading deadline approaches. Dombrowski also brought in Steve Pearce a month ago and last week acquired starter Nathan Eovaldi, who earned a victory Sunday in his first start for Boston.With the win http://www.nationalsfanproshop.com/authentic-shawn-kelley-jersey , the Red Sox improved to 75-33 – the best record in baseball, and their best mark since Ted Williams’ team coasted to the AL pennant in 1946. Boston is a season-high six games ahead of the Yankees, who visit Fenway Park for a four-game series this weekend.”I’m excited. I think we’re all excited,” Price said. ”I don’t know how many games we’re in first place by, but when you’re playing the Yankees, it’s always exciting.”Kinsler, 36, is batting .239 with 13 homers and 32 RBIs for the Angels this season. Dombrowski said he expects Kinsler to be the regular second baseman, moving Brock Holt and Eduardo Nunez back into utility roles once third baseman Rafael Devers comes off the disabled list.”Ian’s a really good defensive player,” Dombrowski said. ”Basically, it’s what we hoped, early this season, that Dustin would be.”Pedroia and Kinsler have been connected since their college days Trea Turner Jersey , when Pedroia took Kinsler’s starting job as shortstop at Arizona State in 2002. Kinsler transferred to Missouri the following year.Pedroia has played just three games this year after left knee surgery in the offseason. Dombrowski says it’s likely he won’t be back until very late in the season, if at all.A 25-year-old right-hander, Buttrey has a 2.25 ERA in 32 relief appearances at Triple-A Pawtucket this season.”He looks pretty darn close to major-league ready,” Eppler said. ”Looks like a guy that’s got a lot of upside.”Jerez, 26, is 2-1 with five saves and a 3.63 ERA in 34 relief appearances for the PawSox. The left-hander averages 95 mph with his fastball and hits 100.”We’re hoping those guys take that next step and we watch them in Los Angeles,” Eppler said. ”The Angels will always remain opportunistic. That’s what at least we hope this trade speaks.”—
