Rangers' Bats Break Out of Slump

Heading into Tuesday's game against the Yankees, the Rangers had lost four straight games and scored five total runs in that four-game span.

They'd been shutout in one game and nearly no-hit in another in which they were able to get a solo homer from Brett Nicholas, of all people, late in the game for their only run of the game against the Yankees on Monday.

On Tuesday night, all that bad mojo went up in flames, as the Rangers exploded for 10 runs on 13 hits, including home runs by Ian Desmond and Rougned Odor.

In all, every Rangers starter except the slumping Delino DeShields had a hit, and four had multiple hits led by Elvis Andrus' three.

Now the Rangers get to deal with a declining C.C. Sabathia on Wednesday night and hopefully can continue their tide of momentum on their way to a series victory and can put that four-game skid in their rear-view mirror.
