The Texas Rangers (47-26, 1st AL West) bounced back from an 8-2 loss to the Cincinnati Reds Tuesday night with a 6-4 win last night in the rubber match led by Cole Hamels who is now 10-1 against the Reds. Hamels struck out eight, allowing only one run in six innings.
“No matter how you do it, no matter how well it looked on paper, we’re getting the job done. It’s about getting the [win],” Hamels said. “We’re playing as a team. No one in this clubhouse is trying to do more than what they’re capable of doing. No one is trying to be selfish. Probably the most positive vibes I’ve experienced day in and day out.”
The Rangers have little time to celebrate as they await the return of the Boston Red Sox (40-32, 2nd AL East) to Arlington. Starting for the Rangers will be Nick Martinez (1-1, 5.14 ERA) who will be going up against Red Sox lefty David Price (8-4, 4.24 ERA).
