Rangers survive Angel Hernandez jump scare to take opener

The Texas Rangers scored twelve runs while the Houston Astros scored eight runs.

The Rangers and Astros drew Lance Barksdale’s umpiring crew — designated crew Q by Major League Baseball — which also happens to count Angel Hernandez among their ranks. Angel, as he is generously named, was behind the dish for tonight’s opener, promising a weird vibe to what is...

Texas Rangers news for April 12, 2024.

Good morning, LSB.

Thoughts on a 1-0 Rangers loss

Photo by Richard Rodriguez/Getty Images

A’s 1, Rangers 0

A’s 1, Rangers 0

Not much to say here, is there? That infield fly non-call was annoying, but it’s hard to argue that was a big factor in the loss when the Rangers couldn’t get hits or do anything productive offensively anyway. So yeah, the offense was ass. I’m not feeling dwelling on it this very moment. I mean, it’s been a problem for much of the last week or so, and maybe we will have to talk about it soon, but not now. ...

7-6 - Rangers collect a single hit against A’s, lose series

Might have to take the banner down after this one...

The Texas Rangers had one hit while the Oakland Athletics scored one run.

Well, that’s pretty embarrassing.

Player of the Game: I mean, Jon Gray allowed a solo home run and struck out nine in his five innings and would have been an easy winner most days but today was the day that the lineup decided to get practically no-hit by the 2024 Oakland Athletics.
