Saturday morning Rangers things

Thomas B. Shea-USA TODAY Sports Saturday morning Rangers news and links Good morning, folks... The Texas Rangers fell to the Houston Astros by a score of 4-3 last night. Mike Minor gave up 4 home runs last night early but battled back at a time when he’s being evaluated by teams considering trading for him. Nomar Mazara knows the Rangers need more from him offensively than what he has done. Reducing his pre-swing movement has helped Joey Gallo become an All Star this season. Hunter Pence is the subject of a documentary that looks at his offseason work to revitalize his career. The...

Astros Crawfish Potluck: July 20th, 2019

Thomas B. Shea-USA TODAY Sports Start your weekend by telling us the best Astros links around The Astros were able to outlast the Rangers last night to make it 3 in a row and help stay ahead of the A’s, who defeated Minnesota in a comeback win last night.

50-47 - Rangers lose dinger duel to Astros 4-3

Photo by Leslie Plaza Johnson/Icon Sportswire via The Rangers fought back late but couldn’t overcome Houston’s four early solo home runs Mike Minor and Justin Verlander dueled tonight in what ended up being a very baseball-in-2019 kind of game where the Astros jumped on Minor for four solo home runs — including three in the bottom of the third — before the Rangers finally got to Verlander with a couple of solo bombs themselves in the top of the sixth. In total, the two top starters combined to strike out 22 batters (Minor 10, Verlander 12) with the difference in this one mostly...
