38-32 - Behind sweet swingin’ Jeff Mathis, Rangers hang on to secure series win over Cincinnati

38-32 - Behind sweet swingin’ Jeff Mathis, Rangers hang on to secure series win over Cincinnati

With the win, the Rangers go into Sunday’s game with a chance to sweep the Reds The Texas Rangers were winners again tonight even as they made it a little harder on themselves than it appeared it would be in the early innings. Texas took a 2-0 lead in the top of the first and scored another pair of runs in the top of the fourth. It looked like the Rangers were set to cruise to another win and secure a winning road trip as starter Mike Minor didn’t allow a hit through the first three innings. In the bottom of the fourth, however, that first Reds hit ended up being a two-run shot off the...

Should the Rangers be buyers or sellers at the MLB trade deadline? SportsDay's experts weigh in

Don't look now, but the MLB trade deadline is just six weeks away. With the Rangers in the thick of the AL wild card race, they will have some decisions to make in the coming weeks. Should they trade or keep Mike Minor? Should they look to add a piece to help in a potenial playoff push? In a recent ESPN.com article, Bradford Doolittle gave the Rangers an aggression rating of six out of ten, which ranked fourth among the six teams realistically vying for the final wild card spot in the AL. Doolittle: "The Rangers' run of solid play has me looking at them moving ever so slightly into buyer...

37-32 - Odor slam sends Rangers to nice 7-1 win in Cincinnati

37-32 - Odor slam sends Rangers to nice 7-1 win in Cincinnati

The Rangers are back to five games above .500 with the win An easy 7-1 interleague win in game No. 69? Nice. Player of the Game: Rougned Odor’s struggles this season — and in recent years — has been well documented but when he’s going right, he can be a force. In June, he’s been starting to get it going right again and that culminated with a grand slam tonight to put this one to bed. It wasn’t just the slam, though, as Rougie also drew three walks tonight and has drawn a free pass in seven of his last eight games. Up Next: Mike Minor will take the mound for the Rangers in the...

Thoughts on a 4-3 Rangers win

Thoughts on a 4-3 Rangers win

Rangers 4, Red Sox 3 Rangers 4, Red Sox 3 What an unexpectedly delightful win. Mike Minor was on the mound today, five days after an adventurous 5.2 IP, 0 runs outing where he had a season-high 117 pitches, and after the first two batters he faced the Rangers were down 2-0, courtesy of a Mookie Betts walk and an Andrew Benintendi home run. With Chris Sale going for Boston, that 2-0 lead in the first looked steep, and there was kind of a sense that, well, Minor doesn’t have his best stuff, Sale is pitching, the Rangers don’t win the first game of the series anyway, so let’s just...

35-30 - Rangers complete rally to best Boston in extras 4-3

35-30 - Rangers complete rally to best Boston in extras 4-3

In a pitchers’ duel that evolved into a back and forth affair, the Rangers came out on top in 11 innings I wrote a whole bunch here about the Rangers losing and then I wrote a whole bunch about them winning and right when I thought they were going to lose again, then they won! That was a big win for Texas who was all but dominated by Chris Sale for much of the night but then they went into full on rally mode in the late innings to scratch and claw their way to an extremely rare road series opener win. And hey, they also padded their Wild Card 2 lead. :) Player of the Game: Mike Minor was...

31-28 - Rangers do it for Dirk with 2-1 walk-off extra innings win over Orioles

31-28 - Rangers do it for Dirk with 2-1 walk-off extra innings win over Orioles

The Rangers did what they had to do to finally not disappoint Dirk Dirk Nowitzki was on hand to watch the Rangers so it’s not like they were allowed to lose to the Baltimore Orioles again. Mike Minor started and seemed pretty hittable but since he was facing the O’s, no runs crossed the plate in his 5 2⁄3 innings and the bullpen was able to keep Baltimore off the board until Shawn Kelley blew the save with one out in the ninth. The offense gave the pitching no wiggle room as they scored just one run through the first 11 plus innings against baseball’s worst team but it was Delino...

The Rangers finally have a No. 1 starter in Mike Minor, but will Texas keep him past the trade deadline?

ARLINGTON - Since the end of spring training, clubs have spent almost every focused minute on preparing for the amateur draft. When it concluded on Wednesday afternoon, around 5 p.m., teams took a well-deserved break.It lasted about an hour.It didn't take long at all for teams to dive into the next phase of the season: Preparing for the trade deadline. By 6 p.m., the Chicago Cubs were reportedly finishing up a deal with free agent reliever Craig Kimbrel, who no longer had draft-pick compensation attached. An hour after that, a handful of scouts, including reps from Atlanta and both New York...
