If Joey Gallo is playing his final games with the Texas Rangers, he’ll leave with a parting shot.
Gallo’s three-run homer capped a five-run, fourth inning as the Rangers beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-4 Tuesday night at Globe Life Field.
The win snaps the Rangers’ 12-game losing streak, tied for the longest in club history with the 1982 team. It’s their first win since July 9.
And it could be Gallo’s last home run — the 145th of his career — for Texas. He has 25 homers and 55 RBIs this season. His 145 homers are 16th most all-time for the Rangers, one behind Rougned Odor.
Gallo is the aim of at least six interested teams looking to deal as MLB’s trade deadline approaches at 3 p.m. Friday.
Nathaniel Lowe started the scoring in the fourth with a two-run, ground-rule double to left-center field, which erased Arizona’s 2-0 lead.
Closer Ian Kennedy, who is another coveted trade option for multiple teams, earned his 16th save with a scoreless ninth.
