ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Rougned Odor’s go-ahead double gave fellow rookie Lisalverto Bonilla a win in his first major-league start, and the last-place Texas Rangers beat Atlanta 3-2 Saturday, handing the Braves another setback in their push for an NL wild-card spot.
Atlanta’s Julio Teheran (13-12) took a no-hitter into the sixth inning before a one-out single from Luis Sardinas. An error by left fielder Justin Upton kept the inning alive, and Odor took advantage by driving home Leonys Martin and Elvis Andrus for a 3-2 lead.READ MORE: Trump says he took the Fifth in questioning in New York Attorney General fraud investigation
