Texas Rangers: Joey Gallo more open to bunting vs. shifts | Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Meanwhile, back at Surprise Stadium, Joey Gallo bunted, which is probably bigger news than Lynn’s pitching or Woodward’s talking. As we all know, there isn’t much that gets some fans’ dander up more than Gallo not bunting against an infield shift.

“We’re you not here? Then it didn’t happen,” Gallo said. “Yeah, it was cool.”

Gallo has shown bunt in each of his past two games. He did it in the first inning Saturday against the San Francisco Giants’ four-outfielder shift, which left the left side of the infield bare.

“I went to bunt against the Giants, and the pitch was three feet outside and it was called a [bleeping] strike,” Gallo said. “And then I was 0-1, but I couldn’t bunt. The approach was there, and the plan was there.

“I’m just trying to do it more. If they shift, here and there, just try to late it down. Screw it. I might as well.”
