55-97 - Stop spreading the news: Rangers swept in New York following 7-3 loss

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ Make it a season-worst 42 games under .500 The Texas Rangers scored three runs but the New York Yankees scored seven runs. The Rangers lost. They were up 3-0 as late as the bottom of the sixth. They allowed four runs in the eighth inning. They were swept. Also, Joey Gallo scored the winning run. :3 Player of the Game: Adolis Garcia uncorked one of the nastiest throws you’ll ever see to peg a then tying Yankees run at the plate. But Isiah Kiner-Falefa was the only Ranger with two hits and he also stole a base, drove in a run, and played some...

55-96 - Rangers gutted by Gallo, Yankees in 7-1 loss

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports Go Gallo, go! The Texas Rangers scored one run, Joey Gallo hit one home run, and the New York Yankees scored seven runs. Gallo wanted to stay in Texas. The Rangers traded him anyway and made him cry. It’s only fair that he goes upper tank against these chumps during his new team’s push to play in October. The loss puts the Rangers at a season-worst 41 games below .500 and gives them only three more losses this season to work with if they want to avoid their first 100-loss season since less than a handful of years from when man first...

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports Back to 40 under they go The Texas Rangers scored three runs but the New York Yankees scored four runs. The Yankees scored those four runs off tonight’s starter A.J. Alexy before the end of the third inning and it seemed like they were off the the races with a chance to blow out the Rangers and keep themselves on the teetering edge of the AL Wild Card hunt. A funny thing happened though as the Rangers stopped allowing runs and then put the next three on the board in the top of the fifth to pull to within one. Ultimately, both...
