The Rangers will go into the 1/10th mark the season Tuesday. They will do it with a winning record at 8-7. Hey, small victories, right?
They won because these teams do not appear to be relieving large deficits, as Joey Gallo broke his week's lump and because the angels are more challenging than their own. Again, small talents, right?
There were a few worthwhile things over Gallo's 436-foot homer who left the bat at 115 mph. Stuff as:
Dowdy gets relief: Kyle Dowdy Shelby Miller lodged with 2.1 relief and received his first major win. Dowdy, Rule 5, picked up a big win in the series, but it's not the best way to describe it.
"It's cool to say that is the first one, but at the end of the year, you hope you don't have to remember the first one as big as others, like play games," Dowdy said. "This is not the first one. This is the first step in a longer journey, you hope."
Miller survived four innings, giving him a surprise at three. But Miller got a little sharper as the game went on. He allowed a two-hour homer, by running in the first time.
Still, there were 15 games at the Rangers. More than five innings have started five times. And that's not going to cut it. It is a good start for the Keepers where the loss record is worrying, but if the full start rotation does not begin to grow deeper in games, the lottery will pay a heavy price earlier or later. More likely than that earlier. And the bottom bottom can use season very quickly.
Rangers wears Jewell: RBI eight Mazara single Nomar parks through the right are in the sixth invention. Mazara continued to bathe nine fields at Elvis Andrus, although he finished in defense. By the time Asdrubal Cabrera came to a plate with two in a row, Jake Jewell had already played 22 pitches in the quest. Cabrera departed on a quick raised tree to make it a two-directioner homer and headed 11-4.
For four and five staff in the last week, the additional two-hour races were significant.
"They are like daggers," said manager Chris Woodward.
There's a home run for Mike Trout! Mike Trout did not make his debut in five games in five matches this season. The Rangers walked three times and kept it until 0pm for another 2 hours. Small talents, right?
He still has an OBP .696 against Texas this year and 2.311 future OPS. Eight games against the Rangers have reached trout for the past year and are running 22 times in 36 plate fixtures (.639).
