Here are the candidates for Texas Rangers star of the game Tuesday, as selected by Star-Telegram beat man Jeff Wilson, from their 6-3 victory in extra innings over the Minnesota Twins at Target Field in Minneapolis.
The Rangers struggled with runners in scoring position, going 1 for 9 over the first nine innings. That changed in extras, with a runner starting at second base.
They finished 3 for 14, and the first one in 10th was a game-winner.
Kyle Gibson: The right-hander tossed a complete game in his return to Target Field, allowing three runs on three hits. Two of the hits, though, were home runs — a two-run shot by Byron Buxton and a solo shot by Willians Astudillo. Gibson struck out eight and walked two.
Adolis Garcia: The center fielder keeps on hitting on the road. He singled twice and brought in the Rangers’ first run with a hit in the first inning, and then hit a two-run homer in the 10th inning. Garcia has seven homers and 19 RBIs since his debut Aug. 13.
Willie Calhoun: He homered for the third time this season, to start the ninth inning. The left fielder has hits in 10 of his past 11 games and is batting .321.
