    No one will remember anything from Tuesday night's game other than Joey Gallo's legendary debut, but there were some other memorable performances from the Rangers' 15-2 win over the White Sox.

    There was a nice outing from Colby Lewis, a hell of a game from Elvis Andrus, hitting in the 5-hole for the first time ever, and the fact they scored 15 runs with Adrian Beltre and Josh Hamilton out of the lineup.

    A big reason for that output was the performance of Carlos Corporan, who led the team in RBIs and didn't even start the game. Corporan entered the game as a pinch-hitter for injured catcher Robinson Chirinos in the third inning and went on to drive in five runs with a nice exclamation point coming in the form of a three-run bomb in the eighth inning.

    Corporan lined a two-run single to center field in the sixth inning, as well, marking the first time in history a catcher has driven in five runs without starting a game, that according to ESPN.

    Again, Corporan led the team in RBIs — one more than Gallo — and no one will remember what he did as everyone is talking on Wednesday about Gallo. It's a shame, but it's also kind of awesome in its own little way.
