The Texas showdown series between the Houston Astros (29-33 3rd AL West) and the Texas Rangers (37-23 1st AL West) came to a close last night with the Rangers taking the series three games to one and nine of their last 10 meetings.
SS Carlos Correa left the game in the fifth inning with a sprained ankle but is not expected to be put on the DL.
“Luckily, so far, the evaluation’s been as positive as we could expect,” Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. “At this point we’re optimistic.”
Martin Perez (5-4, .322 ERA) took the mound for the Rangers and pitched six solid innings giving up two runs in the third. LHP Jake Diekman closed the game and picked up his first career save of the season.
The Rangers hit the road for a series’ against the Mariners, Athletics and the Cardinals before returning home on the 20th for a makeup game with the Orioles followed by a 4 game series against the Boston Red Sox. Plenty of great seats are still available so secure yours today!
