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.”

The Rangers begin a three game series against the LA Angels today.  Be sure to get out and support your Rangers this season!  Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets are still available!
