ARLINGTON, Texas — Yovani Gallardo earned his 100th career victory, Delino DeShields had a part in all the Texas runs even without an RBI and the Rangers stopped the Toronto Blue Jays' five-game winning streak, 4-1 Thursday.

The AL East-leading Blue Jays lead the majors with 5.4 runs per game, and had outscored opponents 54-19 during their recent string.

With two runners on in the seventh, DeShields hit a single that rolled past charging right fielder Jose Bautista. The ball wound up on the warning track and DeShields circled the bases for a 4-0 lead.

Gallardo (11-9) threw 5 1-3 scoreless innings. He became the fourth native of Mexico to win 100 games, joining Fernando Valenzuela (173), Esteban Loaiza (126) and Ismael Valdez (104).

Shawn Tolleson worked the ninth for his 26th save in 28 chances. Sam Dyson got Troy Tulowitzki to ground into an inning-ending double play with the bases loaded in the seventh.

DeShields finished 2 for 2 with three walks. Marco Estrada (11-8) took the loss.
