Thoughts on a 5-1 Rangers win

Thoughts on a 5-1 Rangers win

Photo by Mike Ehrmann/ Rangers 5, Rays 1 Rangers 5, Rays 1 This was kind of a weird game. Before we delve into the weirdness, I’d like to point out that the Rangers have allowed a total of 7 runs in their last four games. The Rangers are 2-2 in that stretch because they didn’t score any runs in the first two of those four games, and if you don’t score runs you’re going to lose. Still, that’s a pretty nice stretch of pitching. Kohei Arihara started for the Rangers, and according to Statcast, I believe, he threw seven pitches today. Not, like, seven total...

5-7 - Arihara a big league winner as Rangers grab 5-1 victory over Rays

5-7 - Arihara a big league winner as Rangers grab 5-1 victory over Rays

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Congratulations to Kohei! The Texas Rangers scored five* runs and the Tampa Bay Rays scored one run. *this asterisk is here because the Rangers should have officially scored six runs but umpiring in baseball is a nebulous mystery pile and Adolis Garcia was robbed of his first big league home run by the crotchety old dullards. While we were all busy bemoaning the impotent hitting over the last week or so, the Rangers’ pitching staff has been busy shutting down their opponents. Over the last ten games, after allowing 25 runs in the first two...

Photo by Douglas P. DeFelice/ Links! Ronald Guzman has a torn meniscus and will be on the IL for an extended period of time, though Chris Woodward doesn’t think it will be season ending. Given that the injury occurred on the very first fielding attempt in Guzman’s very first start in left field, I think this is what the oracles would call an ill omen. Hitting coach Luis Ortiz says that the Ranger offense is like a planted seed, there’s not a whole lot going on above the surface because all the action is going on out of view. Nick Solak came up big last night after...

Thoughts on an 8-3 Rangers win

Thoughts on an 8-3 Rangers win

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Rangers 8, Rays 3 Rangers 8, Rays 3 That’s not how I was thinking things would go about a half hour in. This was Kyle Gibson’s third start of the season, having gotten knocked out in the first inning on Opening Day and following it up with 6 shutout innings his second time out. Early on it seemed like we were going to have another bad Gibson outing, as he gave up the 1-0 lead he was staked to three batters into the game, with a one out Randy Arozarena HBP being followed by an RBI Joey Wendle double to make it 1-1. After a Brandon Lowe...

4-7 - Rangers score many runs against Rays to end slide with 8-3 victory

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Open the floodgates! The Texas Rangers scored eight runs and the Tampa Bay Rays scored three runs. The Rangers went 22 innings without scoring a run and then scored a run in the first inning of tonight’s contest. After trailing 2-1 following the first inning, the Rangers next scored four runs in the top of the fourth despite coming into the game having scored four runs total in their last 40 innings. Ain’t that just the way. Up 5-2, the Rangers eventually plated another run in the top of the sixth and a Charlie Culberson two-run dong in...

Guzman to the i.l., Garcia up

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports The Rangers have placed Ronald Guzman on the injured list and called up Adolis Garcia The Texas Rangers have placed Ronald Guzman on the injured list due to a torn meniscus in his right knee, the team announced today. To take his place on the active roster, the Rangers have purchased the contract of outfielder Adolis Garcia. To make room for Garcia on the 40 man roster, the Rangers have moved pitcher Matt Bush from the 10 day injured list to the 60 day injured list. A torn meniscus is probably good news for Guzman, all things considered. ...

AJM’s first look at Globe Life Field

AJM’s first look at Globe Life Field

AJM went to the Rangers game on Sunday, and got his first look at the new ballpark I had my first in person look at Globe Life Field on Sunday. It is the first time I’d seen the stadium since it was under construction, and even then I only saw it from the outside while walking from Globe Life Park to my car (or vice versa) before or after a game. I’d obviously seen it quite a bit on television, and had seen photos, but this was my first time to check it out in person. My takeaway is that it is a nice park, I liked it, and I will enjoy attending games there. I took photos...
