The Texas Rangers scored zero runs and the Baltimore Orioles scored three runs.

The Orioles have lost 104 games in 2021, have the worst record in baseball, and had gone a remarkably horrific 23-51 at home so far this season before tonight’s contest.

They beat the Rangers 3-0.

Player of the Game: Mike Foltynewicz tossed a couple of scoreless innings with three strikeouts for the Rangers out of the bullpen tonight.

Texas Rangers lineup for September 23, 2021 against the Baltimore Orioles: starting pitchers are Glenn Otto for the Rangers and Zac Lowther for the Orioles.

Whenever I do the lineup posts this season I have frequently find myself thinking in my head I need to type “against the Houston Astros” regardless of who the actual opponent is. I have no idea why that is, although the act of having noticed that seems to...

Why there’s a lot of upside in the future for Rangers pitcher Glenn Otto

A reunion between Glenn Otto and the Yankees happened, but not exactly the way he wanted. Otto’s first MLB start on the east coast will come Thursday in Baltimore rather than earlier this week in the Bronx.

Taking a look at Anderson Tejeda’s 2021 season

With the 2021 season coming to a close, we are going to look back at the year that was for members of the Texas Rangers. The season isn’t over yet, of course, but there are a number of players who are on the injured list or otherwise won’t be playing the rest of the way, so we can start by looking at those guys whose seasons are done, and once the season is over we can include...

Jeff Wilson says it wasn’t just bad luck that cost them the game last night, but it certainly didn’t help.

Last night capped off the last stretch of the season where the Rangers will have to face good teams, and the youngsters are learning that giving up walks means they’re giving up games.

Adolis Garcia had a killer throw from right field last night to nail Kyle Higashioka at the plate in the fifth.

Down East faces a 2-0 deficit in their best of 5 series

Down East got down early to Charleston, allowing three runs in the first, then after a pair of runs from each team they tied the game at 5 with a three run eighth inning. Charleston scored three in the ninth, however, which gave them the final margin in an 8-5 Wood Ducks loss. The DEWDs now have to win three in a row to take the championship.

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.

The Rangers have outrighted pitcher Kohei Arihara

Texas Rangers pitcher Kohei Arihara has cleared waivers and been outrighted to AAA Round Rock, the team announced yesterday. As part of that announcement, it was indicated that Arihara is expected to start for Round Rock this coming weekend.

Arihara clearing waivers was not unexpected, as the righthander is due a guaranteed $3.6 million in 2022 by virtue of the two year deal he signed with the...

Jeff Wilson says there are very few “sure things” for the roster next year but notes that some players like Leody Taveras have done what they can to earn a spot for 2022.

Although Jon Daniels says that Leody Taveras isn’t going to just be the “heir apparent” the way he was in 2021 and will have to earn a position on the major league team.

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...

55-95 - Rangers comeback bid goes bust in the Bronx with 4-3 loss to Yankees

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...
