Gallardo shuts down Tigers, Rangers hold off Detroit 5-3

DETROIT (AP) - Yovani Gallardo took a shutout into the seventh inning, and the Texas Rangers spoiled Randy Wolf's return to the major leagues with a 5-3 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Saturday night.

Texas scored four runs in the third, when the Rangers hit five straight singles. That was enough support for Gallardo (10-9), who allowed eight hits in six-plus innings. The Tigers didn't score until Ian Kinsler's three-run homer with two outs in the ninth.

Wolf (0-1) allowed three earned runs and nine hits in seven innings, acquitting himself fairly well in his first major league start since June 2014. Wolf, who turned 39 on Saturday, was acquired by Detroit in a trade with Toronto on Thursday, as the Tigers tried to shore up a rotation that is missing injured starters Anibal Sanchez and Daniel Norris.

Rougned Odor hit a solo homer for Texas in the ninth.
