ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Joey Gallo ended the longest home run drought of his career at 20 games with the Texas slugger’s hardest hit of the season, an early tiebreaking two-run shot in the Rangers’ 6-1 victory over the Los Angeles Angels. Nick Solak homered twice as the Rangers stopped their second four-game losing streak this season. Shohei Ohtani was 0 for 4 as the LA designated hitter a day after getting the win, scoring three runs and driving in two while becoming the first home run leader to start as a pitcher since Babe Ruth a century ago.
