66-89 - Rangers drop wild dinger-filled finale 10-9 to Mariners

66-89 - Rangers drop wild dinger-filled finale 10-9 to Mariners

Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports Five big flies wasn’t enough for Texas The Texas Rangers scored nine runs but the Seattle Mariners scored ten runs in 11 innings. Throughout the history of T-Mobile Park (nee Safeco Field), hitting home runs has often been quite a chore. That’s especially true in night games and even more so when the evenings are beginning to get a little crisper as autumn approaches. Therefore, it’s mildly baffling to note that the Rangers and Mariners combined to score 19 runs tonight and the first 13 of those runs came via the nine home runs that...

2022 Round Rock Express final regular season hitting stats

2022 Round Rock Express final regular season hitting stats

Photo by Richard Rodriguez/ The final regular season numbers for the Round Rock Express hitters The regular season for the AAA Pacific Coast League finished yesterday, and as the Round Rock Express did not make the playoffs, their season is over. Here are the final stats for the Round Rock Express hitters: Bubba Thompson was named the Express MVP, and he had a nice year, getting on base at a decent clip, hitting for some power, and having unreal success on the basepaths (49 for 52 on stolen base attempts). I tend to see him as a bench guy in the majors, most likely,...

Kyle Cody threw two shutout innings. The Express garnered one hit and two walks. It was a very forgettable game. Round Rock box score

66-88 - Rangers silenced by Seattle via 3-1 loss

Photo by Steph Chambers/ Josh Jung can’t do it alone The Texas Rangers scored once but the Seattle Mariners scored thrice. Josh Jung has produced six runs in this series, including the only run this evening, and the rest of the lineup has been nestled firmly on a goose egg so far. The Jung Show was good enough last night, but tonight, he needed some assistance that never came. And so, a real resigned loss puts the Rangers back to 22 games below .500. Player of the Game: Not much to pick from so we’ll highlight Martin Perez again. It wasn’t ‘Teen’s best outing...

Thoughts on a 5-0 Rangers win

Photo by Steph Chambers/ Rangers 5, M’s 0 Rangers 5, M’s 0 Even when playing out the string in a bad, disappointing season, there are games that make following your team worthwhile. This was one of them. It wasn’t a game that looked like it boded well for Texas. The M’s were starting Robbie Ray, the 2021 A.L. Cy Young Award winner, and while Ray isn’t having a CYA-worthy season, he’s still a lefty with good stuff who has put up a 2.5 bWAR on the year. The Rangers, meanwhile, were doing the much-dreaded bullpen game. Their record on the year in bullpen...

Minor league update for 9/27/22

A championship for Frisco and a win for Round Rock The Frisco Roughriders are the 2022 Texas League champions. Down 3-2 with two outs in the ninth, with two strikes, Thomas Saggese had an RBI single to tie up the game. The Roughriders played four runs in the tenth inning, and ended up winning by a score of 7-5. Jack Leiter started but had a bad outing to finish out his 2022 season, walking four in 1.2 IP, allowing two hits and two runs. Owen White, conversely, struck out all six batters he faced — he has a legitimate claim to being the best pitching prospect in the system....

The Texas Rangers were up for playing spoiler tonight as they try to make the Seattle work for their first playoff appearance in over 20 years.
