ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Kyle Gibson had a season-high 10 strikeouts, Joey Gallo hit two massive home runs and the Texas Rangers have won consecutive games for the first time in more than a month. Gallo matched his career high with five RBIs in the 8-0 win over the Kansas City Royals. He hit a three-run homer 451 feet in the fourth inning, and added a two-run shot in the eighth that went 445 feet. Gibson is 6-0 after allowing only two singles and a walk in his seven innings. The Rangers hadn’t won back-to-back games since a three-game sweep of Houston from May 20-22.
