ARLINGTON Jay Bruce Jersey , Texas (AP) — Rougned Odor and the Texas Rangers quickly got after yet another new Angels pitcher.Odor’s two-run single capped a five-run outburst in the second inning off recently acquired Odrisamer Despaigne, the 14th starting pitcher used by Los Angeles this season, and the Rangers went on to a 6-4 win on Friday night.“Hopefully we keep doing what we’re doing right now,” said Nomar Mazara, whose leadoff single started the second.“You’ve got to credit the hitters in the lineup, the job that they’re doing,” manager Jeff Banister said. “We’re constantly talking the message of grinding at-bats out, be able to keep the ball in the middle of the field, the at-bats to draw walks, to create run-scoring opportunities http://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/authentic-fernando-rodney-jersey , to hit behind runners, and drive the baseball in the gap.”Joey Gallo’s two-run double into the right-field corner put the Rangers up 2-1 before he scored on a groundout by Isiah Kiner-Falefa. Odor’s two-run single was the fourth consecutive Rangers hit, and he added a sac fly in the seventh inning.Drew Hutchison (2-2) struck out six and allowed two runs over five innings in his third start for the Rangers.“Anytime you give up a run and then come back and score five … then I was able to kind of get in a rhythm after that and have a few good innings,” Hutchison said.Jose Leclerc struck out the side in the ninth for his fourth save.“He’s nasty. It’s fun to watch him when I’m playing the outfield,” Mazara said. “His pitches move a lot.” Andrelton Simmons hit a two-run homer , his eighth, that got the Angels within 5-4 in the sixth.Despaigne (2-1), acquired Tuesday from the Miami Marlins in exchange for cash considerations, allowed five runs in four innings while becoming the 34th pitcher used by Los Angeles, which had never before used more than 31 in a season. Two relievers made their big-league debuts in the series opener for the Angels http://www.metsfanproshop.com/authentic-todd-frazier-jersey , when Texas overcame a five-run deficit even before its first at-bat to win.“His stuff looked good. He obviously had a tough second inning,” manager Mike Scioscia said. “It looks like he lost his release point in the second. His ball-strike ratio was getting a little out of whack and he fought hard to get out of that inning with only five, but the damage was done at that point.”SHORT HOPSCarlos Tocci had his first career three-hit game and scored twice for Texas. …. The Angels have used 57 different players overall, also a team record.THE PLAYERS NAMED LATERThe Rangers acquired a pair of 19-year-old prospects, the players to be named later to complete trades they made last month with Pittsburgh and Arizona. Texas got 3B Sherten Apostel from the Pirates, who acquired right-hander Keone Kela in a July 30 deal. Left-hander Josh Javier is part of the July 31 trade that sent lefty reliever Jake Diekman to the Diamondbacks.TRAINER’S ROOMAngels: RHP Matt Shoemaker, who made only one start before going on the DL with a right forearm strain the first week of the season, is working out in Arizona. Scioscia said “Shoemaker is making some great strides, and that’s great to see.” The Angels play in Arizona next week.Rangers: CF Delino DeShields was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a fracture on the tip of his right middle finger. He got hurt in the series opener Thursday night when he got hit by a pitch on an attempted bunt. … 3B Adrian Beltre missed his third consecutive game since coming out Monday night after aggravating his trouble left hamstring that has already landed him on the DL twice this season.UP NEXTAngels lefty Andrew Heaney has gone nearly three years since winning a start on the road. His streak of 16 consecutive winless road starts has already tied Rudy May (1965-69) for the longest such streak in team history. Heaney is 0-2 with a 10.57 ERA in two career starts at Texas. He is 0-5 in 11 road starts this year, and 7-2 in 11 starts at Angel Stadium. Martin Perez (2-5) will start for the Rangers. The Colorado Rockies are in a much different place than the last time they visited Angel Stadium.When the Rockies open a two-game interleague series against the Los Angeles Angels on Monday night David Wright Jersey , they’ll be one game behind the Arizona Diamondbacks for first place in National League West and a game behind the Milwaukee Brewers for the second NL wild card.Colorado (71-59) had moved into a tie for first in the NL West with a 9-1 win over visiting St. Louis on Saturday night but lost 12-3 to the Cardinals on Sunday.Article continues below ...Arizona, meanwhile, bounced back from losses to Seattle on Friday and Saturday to beat the Mariners on Sunday and regain their one-game lead. The Los Angeles Dodgers are 2 1/2 games behind Arizona.“Once we start the game, we’re just trying to win and not worry about anybody else, but it’s hard not to look at the scoreboard,” Colorado second baseman DJ LeMahieu told reporters after Sunday’s loss.The last time the Rockies visited Anaheim was May 12-13, 2015. They lost both games to extend their losing streak to 11 games, which would match their longest since a 13-game skid in 1993.It’s a different story this time around.The Angels (63-68) are trying to avoid losing a season-high seven straight games, and they’ve dropped eight of their past nine overall to fall a season-low five games below .500.Colorado shortstop Trevor Story told reporters on Sunday that the Rockies won’t be taking anyone lightly.“Every game matters,” he said. “That’s fun. That’s exciting. That’s why we play http://www.metsfanproshop.com/authentic-zack-wheeler-jersey , so we want to be the last team standing.”Colorado third baseman Nolan Arenado is an Orange County native who grew up about 18 miles south of Angel Stadium. He made his only two appearances in Anaheim three years ago, going 2-for-8 in the series with a double.Arenado is hitting .333 in August with three home runs and 11 RBIs, raising his season totals to .311 with 31 home runs and 90 RBIs. By comparison, Angels center fielder Mike Trout, who has played 11 less games than Arenado, is hitting .311 with 30 home runs and 60 RBIs.Colorado right-hander Jon Gray is scheduled to start the series opener.Since his last loss on June 12 against the Philadelphia Phillies, Gray is 4-0 in 10 starts with a 3.48 ERA. Colorado’s offense has averaged 6.6 runs in those 10 starts.Gray (10-7, 4.67 ERA) made his only career appearance against the Angels on May 8 in Denver, shutting them out for seven innings and allowing four hits in the 4-2 win.The Angels are scheduled to start Odrisamer Despaigne (2-2, 6.35) Mookie Wilson Jersey , a journeyman right-hander who has mostly pitched out of the bullpen in his career. Los Angeles was able to get six innings out of converted reliever Felix Pena in Sunday’s 3-1 loss to the Astros, allowing manager Mike Scioscia to rest some of his taxed relievers.“We’ve got nine (relievers) down there now, so you’ve kind of got depth in numbers,” he said. “We’re going to need all of them.”Despaigne is 3-0 with a 2.01 ERA in seven career appearances against Colorado, including three starts. He last faced the Rockies on Sept. 25 as a member of the Miami Marlins, allowing two runs in six innings of a 5-4 victory.
