Thoughts on an 11-3 Rangers loss

Thoughts on an 11-3 Rangers loss

Reds 11, Rangers 3 Red Sox 11, Rangers 3 That game was pretty terrible. Ariel Jurado, who has been one of the really good stories of the early going, got hit hard early and often. He ended up getting pulled in the top of the fourth after being unable to retire any of the first three hitters he faced that inning, then saw Peter Fairbanks allow the runner Jurado left on base to score when he gave up a home run to Yasiel Puig. Final line was 3 IP, 9 hits, 7 runs, 1 walk, 0 Ks. These games happen, and Jurado still has a 4.23 ERA on the season, which is good. If Jurado can keep his ERA...

The road trip to Boston and Cincinnati showed just how far the Rangers have to go to become a serious contender

CINCINNATI - The Rangers split at Fenway Park. They won their series in Cincinnati. They return home from Arlington with their first winning road trip of the year.Now for a dose of reality: They lost ground in the process.The road trip ended with an ugly 11-3 Father’s Day loss to Cincinnati. It was the kind of loss even your dad would try to return. The game was delayed more than 90 minutes by rain and ended in more rain. For the first time in three weeks, the Rangers were non-competitive, losing a game by more than two runs. Starter Ariel Jurado was not very good; his fastballs were up in...

Thoughts on a 9-5 Rangers win

Thoughts on a 9-5 Rangers win

Rangers 9, Red Sox 5 Rangers 9, Red Sox 5 How pissed off must Red Sox fans be right now, losing a game where Chris Sale gave up just one run, and then a game where they were beaten by Ariel Jurado? Ariel Jurado and Adrian Sampson, incidentally, continue to be two pretty significant reasons why the Rangers have a winning record despite three-fifths of their Opening Day rotation being either on the 60 day injured list or terrible. I almost hesitate to talk about it lest it crumble to dust when light is shone on it, but...Jurado and Sampson have pitched pretty well. Sampson was...

Rangers come up with second straight win vs. Red Sox amidst chaotic umpire performance

BOSTON - To the question of what could possibly rile up California Cool, positive-thinking Rangers manager Chris Woodward to the point where he would lose himself in the moment and earn an ejection, there is now an answer.Angel Hernandez.While the Rangers and Red Sox were playing what was an ostensibly big series at Fenway Park for a mid-June Tuesday, Ariel Jurado pitched six solid innings, Hunter Pence hit the first inside-the-park home run of his career, Asdrubal Cabrera had a big two-out, two-run single and Ronald Guzman a two-run double in the Rangers 9-5 win that pushed the Rangers to a...

36-30 - Texas puts the hurt on Boston with 9-5 beating

Thanks to Ariel Jurado and an offensive outburst, the Rangers are a season high six games above .500 The Texas Rangers are now 36-30 and winning road games in Boston against the defending champion Red Sox and, at least as far as tonight’s game went, doing so in a laugher. You know, just as we all anticipated. Not a laugher? The fact that Angel Hernandez still has a prominent role as a MLB umpire. Even though the game became a cakewalk for the Rangers, we were also treated to an impromptu ump show as acting crew chief Hernandez ejected the managers from each squad — Chris Woodward’s...

Red Sox vs. Rangers: Darwinzon Hernandez makes his first start

Red Sox vs. Rangers: Darwinzon Hernandez makes his first start

Jackie Bradley Jr. has the day off. The Red Sox (34-33) look to stay above .500 with a win against the Rangers (35-30) tonight at Fenway Park (7:10 p.m.) behind Darwinzon Hernandez, the team’s number one pitching prospect, who will make his second big league appearance and first start when he toes the rubber tonight. He’ll be faced by someone named Ariel Jurado, which — sure. The problem is that this Red Sox team seems consigned to (extremely) relative mediocrity, and in some ways are the reverse-image Rangers: expensive and barely in the playoff race despite themselves. The Rangers...

Thoughts on a 6-2 Rangers win

Rangers 6, Royals 2 Rangers 6, Royals 2 That game sucked until it was really awesome. As far as thoughts go, I don’t have many. Ariel Jurado continues to look like someone who may be a major league starting pitcher, which I thought there was no chance of two months ago, and that’s awesome, especially with him winning the first major league game his parents have seen him pitch. The offense was terrible except for that one inning that scored six runs, which included Joey Gallo’s first career grand slam, on one of those beautiful Joey Gallo moonshots that is like the platonic ideal of...

28-27 - Gallo’s gallant grand slam guides Rangers to 6-2 conquest of KC

A magnificent dong it was The Texas Rangers, following getting five-hit in a loss to the Kansas City Royals last night, were getting shut out by Danny Duffy and the Royals tonight until the sixth inning when they got sick of being dominated by the freaking Kansas City Royals and compiled a six-run outburst that was punctuated by a very emphatic grand slam off the bat of the American League’s best player, Joey Gallo. Golly, that one felt good. Also, Ariel Jurado’s parents got to see him pitch in the big leagues and in the US for the first time and saw him pick up a win after a quality...
