Thoughts on a 2-0 Rangers loss

Twins 2, Rangers 0

Twins 2, Rangers 0

Well, the streak was fun while it lasted. Alas, all good things must end. Bartolo Colon...I’ve kind of just assumed the magic has run out and he’s going to be thoroughly mediocre going forward, except for those times when he’s not locating his pitches, at which times he will be really awful. But he had one of those weird, inexplicable really good games again today, going 7 innings, allowing 2 runs on 7 hits, 1 walk and 5 Ks. The Twins offense...

34-45 - Rangers winning streak comes to an end with 2-0 loss in Minnesota

Jose Berrios was bery good as Texas was held scoreless

Two, two-out RBI singles doomed Bartolo Colon and the Rangers and *poof* just like that the winning streak has come to an end.

Colon pitched seven innings, allowed just the two runs and definitely deserved a better fate, but he could have soft-tossed his way to a perfect game today and the Rangers still might not have won as Twins starter Jose Berrios was dominant with a career high 12 Ks and just three hits allowed over seven innings....

Rangers may keep Adrian Beltre beyond trade deadline

Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre is reportedly available, though it’s no sure thing the team will trade the future Hall of Famer, Jeff Wilson of the Star-Telegram writes. Rather, the Rangers are interested in keeping Beltre, an impending free agent, in hopes of re-signing him prior to next season. In order to deal Beltre, the Rangers would need a return that outweighs the benefits of retaining the 39-year-old through the season and trying to re-sign him, Wilson hears. And should teams...

Paul Molitor hints Jurickson Profar HBP was purposeful

Jurickson Profar was hit by pitches three times on Saturday, and Minnesota manager Paul Molitor suggested today the third time was intentional

Jurickson Profar was hit by pitches three times yesterday, and the third time, in the seventh inning, prompted Texas Rangers manager Jeff Banister to yell at his Minnesota Twins counterpart Paul Molitor.

Thoughts on a 9-6 Rangers win

Rangers 9, Twins 6

Rangers 9, Twins 6

Seven in a row, you guys. Yovani Gallardo made his second start for the Rangers, and had another very Gallardo start. Two batters into the bottom of the first Minnesota had two runs, via a single and a home run, and then there was a one out walk to the cleanup hitter, and one started wondering how soon we would be seeing Matt Moore. But Gallardo settled down, and kept the Twins off the board until giving up a two run bomb with one out in the sixth. ...

Beltre’s bat leads Rangers to 9-6 win over Twins

Make it seven in a row for the Texas Rangers

Yovani Gallardo had what has to be the Platonic ideal 2018 Texas Rangers start as he gave up four runs in 5 1?3 innings but kept the walks allowed to a meager two while striking out only three.

Unlike other weeks, that might have led to a loss. But this is not other weeks. This is the week that the Rangers only win baseball games.

Indeed, after a six-run outburst in a rather odorous outing from Minnesota starter Jake Odorizzi, the Rangers kept...

Chavez getting more prominent role in bullpen

Rangers reliever Jesse Chavez has gone from mop-up to setup and earned a more prominent role in the bullpen. Chavez even picked up the third save of his career when he pitched two scoreless innings in the Rangers' 8-1 victory on Friday night. Chavez entered the game in the eighth inning with a three-run lead. Rangers manager Jeff Banister wanted to give setup relievers Jake Diekman and Jose Leclerc extra rest so he called upon Chavez.
