Gibsons Ryan Dempster appears to have found his form with the Texas Rangers.
Dempster improved his record to 3-1 (8-6 overall) since the July 31 trade from the Chicago Cubs with a 9-3 win over the Minnesota Twins last Saturday afternoon.
Dempster allowed only two runs in six innings on eight hits with two walks and seven strikeouts.
He was helped out by a hot day from Ian Kinsler who led off the game with a home run and a bases-loaded triple in the third.
Mitch Moreland also launched a 150-metre shot as well, pacing the offence.
Dempster is back on the mound this Friday night when the Rangers head to Cleveland for a weekend series with the Indians.
