Gallo goes deep for 13th home run of season

MLB.com @Sullivan_Ranger

SEATTLE -- Rangers left fielder Joey Gallo moved into a seven-way tie for the most home runs in the Major Leagues when he hit his 13th homer in the sixth inning of Tuesday night's 9-8 loss to the Mariners.

Gallo's home run came off of Mariners starter Mike Leake, a fly ball down the left-field line rather than one of his majestic blasts to right. It still moved him into a tie with six other players for most in the Majors: Ozzie Albies, Mookie Betts, Bryce Harper, Manny Machado, Jose Ramirez and Khris Davis.
