Thoughts on a 9-5 Rangers win

Gallo walk and a Heineman single in the top sixth gave the Rangers an opportunity, but they were stranded, and so it was the seventh inning that saw Texas put up another crooked number. Offensive spark plug Jeff Mathis led off the inning with a walk, which was followed by walks from Choo and from Elvis Andrus. Lefty Tyler Anderson was brought in to face the struggling Willie CalhounCalhoun laid off a pair of close pitches, and then on 2-0, lofted a ball to center, deep enough to bring home Mathis from third, in what was a tremendous at bat to give Texas the lead.
