Joey Gallo and Rougned Odor homered and Todd Frazier had two doubles for the Rangers.

Gallo got a run back for Texas with a solo homer in the fourth, his fifth of the season, but Gray cruised through the last three-plus innings. Gray (1-2) allowed three runs on three hits in his seven innings.

Colorado tacked on two more in the fourth on RBI doubles by Story and Blackmon and then Butera's double down the left-field line scored two more in the fifth to give the Rockies a seven-run lead.

The Rangers got a run in the eighth when Elvis Andrus doubled and scored on Danny Santana's bloop single and two in the ninth on a pair of bases-loaded walks.
