Alex Rios flex his muscles Monday night against the Houston Astros as he quickly hit for the cycle in six innings.  Rios joins Mike Trout and Brandon Barnes as the only players to hit for the cycle this season.  He smacked a two-run double in the first, reached on infield single to third, a solo home run in the fourth, and a RBI triple in the sixth inning.  Take a  look:

The Texas Rangers went on to route the Houston Astros 12-0 as Ranger’s pitcher, Derek Holland throws a complete game shutout allowing six hits and striking out nine, for his 10th victory of the season. Texas remains a game behind Cleveland Indians for the last playoff spot with seven games remaining.
