Corporan Has Historic, Forgotten Night

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.
