ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Yovani Gallardo pitched seven scoreless innings, Rougned Odor had three hits with a two-run single in his return to the majors and the Texas Rangers beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-1 Monday night.
Gallardo (6-6) struck out four and walked three while allowing four hits. The right-hander has won all three of his decisions over his last five starts.
Odor was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock earlier Monday when outfielder Delino DeShields (left hamstring) was put on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring.
After singles in his first two at-bats off Carlos Frias (4-4), Odor greeted reliever Adam Liberatore with a two-run single in the sixth that put the Rangers up 4-0.
Shawn Tolleson worked the ninth for his ninth save in as many chances, a day after giving up a ninth-inning run in a tie game that became a 4-3 home loss to Minnesota.
