Gallo goes deep twice as Rangers beat Mariners, 11-7
Texas' Nos. 5-7 hitters, Gallo, Isiah Kiner-Falefa and Ronald Guzman, each had three hits to pace a 19-hit attack.
Rangers right-hander Yovani Gallardo (7-1), who pitched for Seattle last season, allowed two runs on three hits in six innings, with three walks and two strikeouts. All seven of Gallardo's wins have come since June 23, the most in the majors during that span, as his ERA with Texas has dropped from 9.00 to 4.97.
The Rangers' bullpen threatened to blow it. Left-hander Alex Claudio and right-hander Cory Gearrin allowed four runs in the seventh as Seattle pulled within 7-6.
After Zunino homered in the fifth to make it 5-2, Gallo led off the bottom of the inning with a fly ball just inside the right field foul pole, his 31st home run of the season. Kiner-Falefa then doubled, advanced on a single by Guzman and scored on Calhoun's double-play groundout for a 7-2 lead.
Mariners right-hander Sam Tuivailala replaced Gonzales in the sixth but lasted just two-thirds of an inning, suffering a strained right Achilles in a rundown. Seattle first baseman Ryon Healy left in the same inning with a heat-related illness.
