Astros blank Rangers in final game
The Texas Rangers were dismantled yesterday by Houston All Star Starter Dallas Keuchel who spun a fantastic 13 strikes over seven innings (2 hits) and now leading the American League with wins.
“That was one of those special performances,” Keuchel said. “I was just trying to ride it and the offense did a heck of a job, so it made my life a lot easier.”
”He utilized the strike zone and we didn’t make adjustments,” Texas manager Jeff Banister said. ”It looked like our approach got a little too big at times … when you get behind a pitcher like that it’s tough to get anything going against him.”
For the Rangers, regrouping seems to be their only alternative as they have won only two of their last six games. They open a series on the road against the Colorado Rockies tonight. Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets are still available so be sure to get yours today!
Texas fans were not happy this weekend as the Los Angeles Angels came into Globe Life Park and commenced to thumping them for three straight games to the tune of 33-8.
“I guess you could chalk this up to having good days and bad days,” Rangers SP Colby Lewis said. “You hope to have more better ones than bad ones. They were aggressive early in the count and swung the bat well. I can’t elaborate any more on what was working and what wasn’t.”
The Angels have been coming into their own for a spell and seem to have put a lot of pieces together this last month.
“We really broke out this series, no doubt,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. “I think what I’m going to carry away from this series is really how well we pitched against a team that can really swing it. I thought we pitched really well this series and gave us a chance, and our offense blossomed.”
The Rangers will have a day of rest before hosting the Arizona Diamondbacks for a three game home stand. Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets are still available so be sure to get yours today and help cheer on your Texas Rangers~!
It wasn’t pretty, but the Texas Rangers wrested away a win from the Boston Red Sox last night in a 2-1 game where pitcher Phil Klein earned his first Major League win as a starter. The game was capped off with a Robinson Chirinos solo home run at Fenway Park. Meanwhile, reliever Shawn Tolleson picked up his first Major League Save. Tolleson worked around a one-out double.
“That was a great game. … A fun one to win,” Tolleson said.

The Texas Rangers seem to have began where they left off last season and are having trouble scoring in this the earliest part of the season. Against the in-state rivals Houston Astros, the Rangers lost game one (5-1), won game two (2-6) and were on the verge of winning game three when Leonys Martin swatted a potential walk off grand slam when George Springer sprang into action and snatching the ball away. A feat even Martin didn’t know he would make.
‘I’ve seen it, so I know it was gone,” Springer said afterward. ”It was over my head for sure. It was a home run, but at the time I didn’t know how far over.”
For Martin, the hit of a lifetime left him scratching his head.
“For me, that’s going to be the best catch that anybody makes in my life,” Martin told reporters after the game. “Especially a grand slam, walk-off. I can’t believe that he made that play. I can’t believe it.”
