That probably could have been scored an error, but he did hit it very hard. Gallo was batting .314/.425/.636 with nine home runs and 31 RBI in 34 games this season at Double-A Frisco when the Rangers decided to promote him to cover for Adrian Beltre’s thumb injury. Gallo had 42 home runs last year in the minors.
