After sweeping the Astros, the Rangers dressed like rock and country music stars for their flight
On Sunday, the Rangers put the cherry on top of a very successful weekend by beating the cross-state rival Astros in Houston, 4-3. It was the first time a team 20 games under .500 completed a road sweep of a team 20 games over .500 since the Royals did it to the Tigers from Sep. 29 - Oct. 1, 2006 -- a fact that 2006 Tigers rookie and current Astros ace Justin Verlander found quite amusing.
To celebrate the sweep, the Rangers channeled their inner Gene Simmons and Garth Brooks by putting on their best rock and country music outfits for their road trip to Arizona:

Infielders Rougned Odor, Elvis Andrus and Jurickson Profar offered an even closer look into their superb fashion choices:
When you look good, you feel good, and you know the Rangers were feeling terrific anyway after the sweep. So now they're on cloud nine.
