Gallo delivered the grounder off lefty Brooks Raley.The Rangers (20-38) got off the mat with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning when first baseman Ronald Guzman smacked a game-tying home run with two strikes off Astros closer Ryan Pressly. The Astros were one strike away from clinching a postseason berth before Guzman smacked a curveball into the right-field seats to tie the game at 3-3 and force extras.Yuli Gurriel, mired in a 3-for-38 slump, put the Astros up 3-2 in the 8th when he lined the first pitch from Rangers right-hander Jonathan Hernandez the opposite way to right field, scoring Jose Altuve.Astros right-hander Jose Urquidy wasn’t as dominant as he was in his previous start against the Rangers this season, with Texas catcher Sam Huff singularly responsible for troubling Urquidy.
