55-70 - The Butler doesn’t do it, Rangers eventually lose 11-7 in six-hour slog

The Texas comeback bid was halted as the Angels scored five late (early morning?) runs off Eddie Butler

It’s games like tonight that makes one glad folks are gullible enough to let billionaires trick them into paying for roofed stadiums. After all, no one should have to spend six hours with Mike Scioscia if they can help it.

Watch: Catholic nun throws nasty curveball on ceremonial first pitch

While Bartolo Colon may be one of the most beloved pitchers in baseball, he could quickly face competition from Sister Mary Jo Sobieck keeps up with her ways.Sister Sobieck of Marian Catholic High School threw out the ceremonial first pitch before Friday’s Chicago White Sox game. Not only did Sister Sobieck show some flair with the baseball before her first pitch, she also flashed some great movement on her curveball. Sister Sobieck put 50 Cent to shame, and she showed some better movement...

Chirinos' foundation lends Back To School aid

Rangers catcher Robinson Chirinos wants a hands-on approach in his efforts to give back to the community. That's why it was important for him to spend Wednesday with his family helping make 1,200 backpacks for the Back to School Outreach event on Saturday at Refuge Church.

Chi Chi Gonzalez returns to game action

Texas Rangers 2013 first rounder Chi Chi Gonzalez pitched for the AZL Rangers yesterday, his first official game action since 2016

Chi Chi Gonzalez, the Texas Rangers’ first round pick in the 2013 MLB Draft, pitched two innings yesterday for the Rangers’ rookie league team in Arizona. It was his first official game action since 2016 — Gonzalez was diagnosed with a torn UCL in the spring of 2017, and after rest and rehab was unsuccessful, he had Tommy John surgery last summer.

Cole Hamels continues dealing for the Chicago Cubs

When the Chicago Cubs acquired Cole Hamels from the Texas Rangers at the trading deadline, fans were unsure of what they would get from the 34-year-old southpaw. In 20 starts with the Rangers this year he was certainly underwhelming, posting a 4.72 ERA (backed by an even worse 5.20 FIP), 1.37 WHIP, and allowing 9.1 hits per nine innings. Whether it’s the fact that he is in the National League again, playing meaningful games with a championship contender, or any other possible reason,...

55-69 - Big inning proves to be enough for Rangers in 6-4 win over Anaheim

The Angels tried to Ranger the Rangers but the Rangers would not be Ranger’d

Remember last night’s game when the Rangers allowed a bunch of early runs and spent the rest of the evening clawing their way back only to heroically triumph over the hated Angels in the end?

Tonight’s game was kind of the opposite of that with Texas scoring five runs in the second innings as they batted around. Afterward, it was the Angels who starting to chip away at the lead over the rest of the game until...

Five-run second inning lifts Hutchison to win

Drew Hutchison struck out a season-high six and allowed just two runs on five hits in a 6-4 win at Globe Life Park on Friday night. It was Hutchison's third start for Texas. Hutchison allowed an RBI single to Taylor Ward in the second inning, but the Rangers' offense backed him with a five-run rally in the second, in which Joey Gallo and Rougned Odor each drove in two runs.

The Rangers’ Confusing Triple Play Hasn’t Happened in Over a 100 Years

Triple plays are pretty rare events in modern Major League Baseball (except when the White Sox pulled off three in 2016 – remember that?). Indeed, there were only seven in baseball all of last season. And only *one* this year, before last night. Yes, last night, the Texas Rangers pulled off just the second triple play of the entire season. Or did they? Yeah, they did. Or wait, was it? When the ball … If the runner was on third at the time … Oh, forget it, just watch for yourself:...
