Thoughts on an 8-2 Rangers loss

ChiSox 8, Rangers 2

ChiSox 8, Rangers 2

Blowouts heading into an off day aren’t fun. Tomorrow is the Rangers first off day since the All Star Break. Then the Rangers play sixteen straight days starting Tuesday. Spencer Howard, man. The dude is maddening. I don’t know what is going on there. You see the flashes where you think, okay, he’s looking good. And then shit goes sideways. I guess he’s going to start again in six days.

Outfielders Steven Duggar and Steele Walker were claimed on waivers after being DFA’d by Texas

The Texas Rangers lost outfielders Steven Duggar and Steele Walker on waivers, it was announced today. Duggar was claimed by the Anaheim Angels. Walker was claimed by the San Francisco Giants.

The pair had been designated for assignment earlier this week when the Rangers needed to create space on the 40 man roster for Cole Ragans and Bubba Thompson. Since the...

48-60 - Rangers take a step backward in 8-2 series finale loss to White Sox

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

The Rangers can still win as many as 102 games

The Texas Rangers scored two runs but the Chicago White Sox scored eight runs.

Everything that made last night’s game fun was reversed in today’s finale. Whereas Dane Dunning thrived yesterday, Spencer Howard continued to flounder during his audition for the rotation.

Whereas Taylor Hearn looked great last night coming out of the bullpen to finish things up for Dunning, today Brett Martin and Garrett...

Sunday morning Rangers news and links

Good morning, folks...

The Texas Rangers beat the Chicago White Sox last night by a score of 8-0.

The DMN’s game story talks about Dunning snapping his winless streak in impressive fashion.

Bubba Thompson has made an impression since being called up, and gives the Rangers the ability to put three players who are all very good defensive center fielders in the outfield at the same time.

Josh Jung played first base on...

White Sox look for offense in series finale against Rangers

If the Chicago White Sox are to salvage a split of their four-game series against the Texas Rangers on Sunday, they'll need to find a new approach to pitching to Adolis Garcia.

Rangers 8, White Sox 0

Rangers 8, White Sox 0

Scoring early and often seems like a good strategy. Of course, allowing just one hit in seven innings of work is also a good strategy, and that is what Dane Dunning did today. Yoan Moncada reached on a two out infield single in the second. Eloy Jimenez drew one out walk in the fourth. And that was it as far as baserunners against Dane Dunning went. Dunning needed just 103 pitches to get through the seven...

The Texas Rangers scored eight runs while the Chicago White Sox didn’t score a run.

Dane Dunning dazzled, Taylor Hearn dominated out of the ‘pen, and the Rangers scored eight runs with El Bombi driving in five of them in one of the easiest wins of the season.

Is Dane gonna do it?

Texas Rangers lineup for August 6, 2022 against the Chicago White Sox: starting pitchers are Dane Dunning for the Rangers and Michael Kopech for the ChiSox.

Well, Texas did not hit Dylan Cease well yesterday, but they can try to rebound and see if they can score more than one run against Michael Kopech today. The novelty factor in the lineup today is that Leody Taveras is the DH, which is kind of funny, though obviously it is...

Texas Rangers news, rumors and links for Saturday, August 6

Good morning, LSB.

The Rangers lost another one-run game last night.

Evan Grant writes that Texas will use the final two months of the season to evaluate the future, including that of fourth-year manager Chris Woodward.

Rookie Bubba Thompson, however, is a bit of a silver lining with his performance in his first two games of big league action.

Elsewhere, Levi Weaver writes about Vandy Boys Jack Leiter...
