Joey Gallo spoils Dylan Bundy's Southwest homecoming with two-run home run
Their fourth win in six games clinched the season series over the Orioles.
Left-hander Mike Minor (8-6), who couldn't get out of the third inning in a loss at Baltimore last month, won a pitchers' duel over Bundy after the Rangers had slugged their way to 17-8 and 11-3 victories in the first two games of the four-game series.
Bundy (7-10), the Gatorade National Athlete of the Year as a senior in 2011 at Owasso High near Tulsa, was making his first major-league start at the site about 250 miles from his childhood home.
Nunez became Baltimore's regular third baseman when shortstop Manny Machado was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers last month as Tim Beckham shifted from primarily playing third base to shortstop.
Gallo's blast to right field was his 29th homer of the season.
Cory Gearrin pitched a scoreless eighth inning before Jose Leclerc worked a perfect ninth for his first save of the season.
Rougned Odor homered, his 13th of the season, leading off the eighth against Baltimore's second pitcher, Paul Fry, to complete the game's scoring.
Mark Trumbo drove in the Orioles' only run in the seventh with a single after Adam Jones had singled with one out and advanced to second on an infield out.
