    When you're facing Chicago White Sox lefty Chris Sale, turns out all you need is that secret weapon in the form of ... Adam Rosales?

    The journeyman utility infielder carried the Rangers to a win over the White Sox and Sale, who entered the game with an ERA of 2.10 that had very recently been in the high-1.00s. Elvis Andrus entered the game with a career mark of 0-for-15 against Sale, but somehow, Rosales owned him.

    And on Wednesday, Rosales owned Sale like he never had before, smacking two home runs off the White Sox ace and accounting for all three of the Rangers' runs in their 3-1 win to take the series in Chicago.

    Just so you know the facts, Rosales is a .222 career hitter, and he now holds a career average against the perennial Cy Young candidate of .545 with three home runs in his 11 career at-bats against the lanky lefty.

    Baseball is a weird game, y'all.
