ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Nick Solak and Charlie Culberson drove in three runs apiece, Kyle Gibson pitched seven strong innings and the Texas Rangers beat the Tampa Bay Rays 8-3 Tuesday night to end a season-high four-game losing streak. Solak delivered the biggest blow in a four-run fourth-inning against Ryan Yarbrough, a double down the left field line that cleared the bases after the Rangers loaded them with three consecutive singles. Culberson finished the fourth with an RBI double, then pushed the lead to 8-2 with a two-run homer off Trevor Richards in the eighth. Gibson allowed two runs and four hits over seven innings. The 33-year-old right-hander walked two and struck out three.
