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.”

Rangers get one of three games against Astros

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.”
