COMING UP 7’S: This is the second year of the Rangers7 Promotion with Papa John’s. Every time the Rangers score 7 or more runs, fans are treated to half off their Papa John’s pizza order the next day at papajohns.com, using the promo code Rangers7. The Rangers scored 7 or more runs 58 times in 2011. Prior to Friday’s game, Papa John's will recognize the top contributors to activating the Rangers7 promotion during the 2011 season. Josh Hamilton and Ian Kinsler tied for first by having nine hits each that produced the Rangers 7th run of a game, and they will receive 'You Delivered' Awards prior to the game. Papa John’s will also donate 1,000 pizzas to the Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation and contribute an additional 250 pizzas to the charities of choice for Hamilton and Kinsler. Through 19 games in 2012, the Rangers have scored at least 7 runs on five occasions.
