Slump? What slump?
Adrian Gonzalez hadn’t hit a home run in 22 games (84 at-bats) entering last night’s
contest in Arlington. But he slugged two Tuesday en route to an 11-5 win over the Rangers.
His first blast of the night, number 19 of the year, came in the first off Texas starter Colby Lewis; Jacoby Ellsbury, who missed the last three games, was on base following a lead-off single. Gonzo’s second homer, twentieth of the season, was a solo shot in the fourth against Lewis.
