The Rangers snapped a three game losing streak.
“It was good to have a win tonight,” Robinson Chirinos said. “We haven’t played well the past few days, but we did tonight. We pitched good and hit. A team win … everybody pulled a little bit to win the game.”
In the rubber match, the Rangers will send out SP Martin Perez (7-4, 3.39 ERA) who will go up against Steven Wright (9-5, 2.42 ERA). Perez last played against the Twins on Wednesday, giving up two runs over seven innings and is 6-0 in his last eight starts.

“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.”
