Thoughts on a 5-3 Rangers loss

Thoughts on a 5-3 Rangers loss

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports Astros 5, Rangers 3 Astros 5, Rangers 3 At a certain point in a losing streak, all the losses start to blur together. I’m not sure I remember much of what happened today. Lance Lynn pitched, he gave up home runs, he still went deep into the game. Chris Martin gave up a home run. Shawn Kelley warmed up then was hurt. Jose Leclerc retired the only batter he faced. Nomar Mazara had a home run today, which I guess is noteworthy. He hadn’t homered for almost a month, and as his slide gets worse and worse, he seems in more and more danger of getting...

50-49 — Brooms brought out, Rangers brushed aside by Astros, 5-3

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports Texas gets swept by the Astros and may have lost their closer That was a bad ending to a bad series. Lance Lynn got jumped on for two runs early, gave up two more runs later on, and the Texas Rangers offense could once again do very little against a little known Astros starter. Nomar Mazara homered and Logan Forsythe had a pinch hit home run, but it wasn’t enough. Player of the Game: Nomar Mazara had a home run — his first in almost a month — and a walk. Next up: The Rangers head to the Pacific Northwest and take on Seattle tomorrow night, with...

Thoughts on a 9-2 Rangers loss

Thoughts on a 9-2 Rangers loss

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports D-Backs 9, Rangers 2 D-Backs 9, Rangers 2 That off day yesterday didn’t appear to help. Lance Lynn, who has been strong all year, had another 6 inning outing and another 100+ outing but struggled early and late, ultimately allowing 5 runs. Taylor Guerrieri, called up today from Nashville to audition for a middle relief job, gave up 4 runs and retired one batter. Errors hurt him but still... Phillips Valdez got into the game to finish out the 9th for Guerrieri and that was his fifth appearance of the year, and I don’t think I remember the other...

After loss to Diamondbacks, Rangers are in danger of slipping further down the AL West

After loss to Diamondbacks, Rangers are in danger of slipping further down the AL West

ARLINGTON - Forget about chasing a wild card spot. The Rangers are in danger of falling to fourth in the AL West.On Tuesday, the combined uncharacteristically poor starting pitching from Lance Lynn, spotty offense - outside the dynamic duo of Joe Gallo and Danny Santana - and some sloppy late defense to fall to Arizona 9-2. It was their third straight loss.It dropped them, at least for the moment, to within a game of the surging Los Angeles Angels. The Angels, who had won four straight entering Tuesday, took a big early lead against Houston in a late game.Lynn, who lost for the first time...

50-45 - Rangers’ slide continues with 9-2 loss to Diamondbacks

Photo by Tom Pennington/ When even Lance Lynn doesn’t win, the Rangers are boned Funny, the moment everyone kind of thought, “hey, Lance Lynn could win the Cy Young!” he went out and had his worst outing since April. Lynn was dink ‘n dunked by the D-Backs until he tried to get out of the top of the sixth inning while already over 100 pitches and something named Ildemaro Vargas made him pay with a two-run homer that made a close 3-1 game into a more dire 5-1 contest that ended up an 9-2 laugher. Nevertheless, Lynn would have had to be pretty dang near perfect to add to his league...

Rangers stock report: Mike Minor is still a very attractive trade option; does it make sense to get rid of Lance Lynn?

Rangers stock report: Mike Minor is still a very attractive trade option; does it make sense to get rid of Lance Lynn?

This week, in the Rangers Stock Report, we look at which possible trade commodities are trending upwards in value and down:SELL WHILE THEY ARE HOTMike MinorEven with two sub-par performances bookended around the All-Star Break, Minor is the Rangers' biggest trade chip. Factor in his season-long performance with an affordable salary (about $3 million for the remainder of this season and $9.8 million for 2020) makes him perhaps the most attractive starting pitching option on the market - if he's on the market. If the Rangers feel they still need to take big steps to close the gaps on contenders...

Thoughts on a 5-0 Rangers win

Rangers 5, Astros 0 Rangers 5, Astros 0 That’s a nice way to come back from the Break. The Lance Lynn Experience continues to surprise and amaze. Against a potent Astros team, Lynn labored a bit the first couple of innings, and there was some reason to question how deep into the game he would be able to go. As it turns out the answer was 7 shutout innings, with 6 hits, 2 walks and a whopping 11 strikeouts. Lynn’s ERA is down to 3.69 on the year. Jose Leclerc pitched a scoreless 8th and Chris Martin pitched a scoreless 9th in relief, and kept drama minimized. Texas jumped all over...

Rangers shut out Astros behind Lance Lynn's 11-strikeout performance

ARLINGTON -- Lance Lynn didn't have his best stuff to start the second half. Then he found it quickly.Lynn mowed through the Astros during a 5-0 Rangers win on Thursday night, tying a season-high by striking out 11 batters in seven shutout innings. He walked two and scattered six hits in 110 pitches. It was Lynn's fourth straight win and fifth straight outing of completing at least seven innings, falling one strikeout short of tying his career high.In the first two innings, Lynn wasn't as sharp, needing 41 pitches to get through six outs that included both of his walks. After the game, Lynn...

Rangers notebook: Adrian Sampson moved from rotation to bullpen to start second half

ARLINGTON -- With the All-Star break and two off days in the next week, the Rangers were left with a surplus of starting pitchers, so Adrian Sampson will move to the bullpen, Woodward said.With an off day on Monday and again July 18, the Rangers only need four starting pitchers to get them through the next three series and the club chose Lance Lynn, Jesse Chavez, Mike Minor and Ariel Jurado to get them there. Woodward said the earliest Sampson might start again is the Seattle series July 22-24, and that the team also considered moving Chavez or Jurado to the bullpen."Sampson was our best...
