52-63 - Beasley a one-run winner in managerial debut for Rangers

52-63 - Beasley a one-run winner in managerial debut for Rangers

Photo by Tom Pennington/ That’s three in a row for Texas The Texas Rangers scored two runs while the Oakland Athletics scored one run. It had to be a one-run win, didn’t it? Player of the Game: Marcus Semien is a prime candidate with a couple of hits and a solo home run. Though six walks was troubling, Glenn Otto had his third stellar outing in a row with six innings of one-run ball with just two hits allowed to make him a contender. However, Leody Taveras tripled, walked, and scored the eventual game-winning run on a Bubba Thompson two-out single in the bottom of...

The Rangers start the Tony Beasley Era tonight, and Brad Miller is DHing and batting seventh, so I assume folks already want him fired. James Kaprielian is starting for the A’s, because of course he is. This is Kaprielian’s 40th career start. Ten of them have come against Texas. The lineup: Semien — 2B Seager — SS Garcia — RF Lowe — 1B Heim —...

Woodward out as Ranger manager, per report

Woodward out as Ranger manager, per report

Photo by Lachlan Cunningham/ The Rangers have reportedly fired manager Chris Woodward The Texas Rangers have fired manager Chris Woodward, per Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News. This is surprising, to me, albeit not shocking. The Rangers were aiming to show improvement in 2022 after last year’s 60-102 finish, and with a $500 million investment in Corey Seager and Marcus Semien, as well as a four year deal for Jon Gray, the organization appeared to expect a .500 or better club in 2022. Texas has played like a .500 club, in terms of run differential, but have...

New Rally Bird Shirt from Breaking T

New Rally Bird Shirt from Breaking T

Get your Texas Rangers Rally Bird t-shirt So the Rangers had a big comeback over the Seattle Mariners on Saturday, breaking a nine game losing streak against Seattle, then followed it up with a win on Sunday, giving Texas a two game winning streak against the hated Mariners. The comeback in Saturday’s game occurred after a pigeon — dubbed the “rally bird” — showed up on the field in the fourth inning. The Rangers put four runs on the board in the bottom of the fourth, giving them a lead that they did not relinquish, and the Legend of the Rally Bird was born. Now you...

Thoughts on a 5-3 Rangers win

Thoughts on a 5-3 Rangers win

Photo by Ron Jenkins/ Rangers 5, Mariners 3 Rangers 5, Mariners 3 Wins are always good. But wins against the hated Mariners are especially good. This was a game where Chris Woodward was going to want Martin Perez to go deep, and Perez got off to a great start in that regard, needing just seven pitches to get through a scoreless inning. Hey, great efficiency! I regret to inform you that sort of low pitch count would not last. It got derailed in the second, in fact. After seven pitches in the second, Perez had a runner on first via a walk, and Carlos Santana at the...

51-63 - Rangers surprisingly take series finale from Mariners 5-3

Photo by Ron Jenkins/ A Sunday afternoon win against Seattle? Impossible! Unless... The Texas Rangers scored five runs while the Seattle Mariners scored three runs. Today’s game had all the makings of the standard fare when it comes to a Rangers loss. A Sunday afternoon game. Sloppy defense. Low-scoring. A taxed bullpen coming into a close game in the late innings. The threat of a looming one-run loss. And against the impervious Mariners. And yet, Texas overcame all of the myriad of usual things that have felled them this season to beat Seattle for a second...

Moore to paternity list, Yerry up

Photo by Ben VanHouten/MLB Photos via Yerry Rodriguez has been called up while Matt Moore is on the paternity list Texas Rangers relief pitcher Matt Moore has been placed on the paternity list, the team announced today. Taking his place on the active roster is relief pitcher Yerry Rodriguez, who has been recalled from AAA Round Rock. Players can spend up to three days on the paternity list, and so Moore will presumably be back by Wednesday. Moore pitched each of the last two nights, and so likely would not have been available today if he were active. Rodriguez, 24,...

50-63 - The Rangers didn’t lose to the Mariners!

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports Thanks, Kins! The Texas Rangers scored seven runs while the Seattle Mariners scored four runs. After losing nine consecutive games against the Mariners, including eight in a row since July 14, all it took for the Rangers to break the spell was for Ian Kinsler to show up and remind Texas that it isn’t too difficult to beat baseball’s saddest franchise. It didn’t appear as though the Rangers would end Seattle’s reign of terror against them as they trailed 3-0 through two innings with Dane Dunning having road game-esque early inning...
