Rangers 5, Mariners 0

ARLINGTON, Texas — On a Tuesday when organizational concern focused on Taijuan Walker’s aborted start at Triple-A Tacoma, the big-league Mariners receded quietly into the night in a 5-0 loss to Texas. Rangers lefty Robbie Ross smothered a Mariners attack that showed signs of life Monday in a 7-1 victory in the series opener at Globe Life Park — and made it look easy. Yep, this was a step back to last weekend for the Mariners, who mustered just one run in two home losses to Oakland. Here, they managed only five hits, all singles, against Ross, 1-0, in 7 2/3 innings … Read...

Robbie Ross quick, efficient and a winner

ARLINGTON, Texas -- It appears that Robbie Ross isn't heading back to the bullpen any time soon. The 24-year-old wanted to start before the season began, making that clear to the front office. And when they offered him the opportunity -- a longshot one when spring training started -- to compete for the rotation, Ross seized it. Injuries and his solid spring earned him the job and on Tuesday he served notice that he intends to make the most of his chance.

Offense takes lead from Prince Fielder

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Prince Fielder didn't say, 'I told you,' but he could have after the Texas Rangers' 5-0 win on Tuesday. Fielder, swarmed by reporters before the game asking about his struggling start, said he was going to hit a home run soon. Even he didn't realize how soon. In his first at-bat of the game, leading off the second inning, Fielder blasted a Blake Beavan two-seam fastball into the seats in right-center 416 feet away. So was Fielder a prophet?

In longest home run drought of career, Prince Fielder says he’s not concerned

ARLINGTON  – Counting last year’s dreadful postseason, Prince Fielder carries a drought of 108 at-bats without a home run into Tuesday’s game against Seattle. It is the longest such drought of his career. Is Fielder concerned? According to him: No. …

Prince Fielder not worried about slow start

ARLINGTON, Texas -- If Texas Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder is concerned about his first few weeks with his new team, he's doing a good job of hiding it. Fielder sat at his locker before Tuesday's game and discussed his season, which includes just nine hits -- and three extra-base hits (all doubles) -- in 51 at-bats, a .176 average. He has three RBIs, the same number as Robinson Chirinos and Mitch Moreland, and a .263 on-base percentage, one of the lowest on the team.

Robinson Chirinos gets another chance to boost laggging offense from catchers for Texas Rangers

ARLINGTON – The Texas Rangers will give Robinson Chirinos another start behind the plate on Tuesday, leaving open the possibility that he will get back-to-back starts against Seattle. Chirinos is catching LHP Robbie Ross on Tuesday and caught RHP Yu …

Texas Rangers look to break from scoring drought against Irving’s Blake Beavan

ARLINGTON – After scoring one or fewer runs in three of their last four games, the Rangers will try to rediscover their offense Tuesday night at 7:05 p.m. (TV: FSSW; Radio: KESN-103.3 FM) when they face Seattle’s Blake Beavan, an …

Extra Bases: Bats aren't making any noise

ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Texas Rangers, poised before the season to be a run-scoring machine, can't seem to find any offense these days. On Monday, against a Seattle Mariners team that came into the game riding a 17-inning scoreless stretch itself, the Rangers managed one run long after the outcome was decided. Texas has scored one run in three of its past four games and is averaging 3.5 runs per contest -- but that's inflated thanks to two 10-run efforts, one of which was a 14-10 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies on Opening Day.

Colby Lewis happy, thankful after first start

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Colby Lewis didn't win his first start in two years. But the 34-year-old veteran won the first major step of his comeback, getting out on the mound after hip resurfacing and giving his team 5 1/3 innings on Monday. Lewis was thankful to be out there. And then he was insistent that he stay a little longer. Lewis wants to pitch deeper into games and after seeing how his hip and his readjusted mechanics -- more range of motion after the surgery, which has created a longer stride -- reacted, he believes he can.
