13-18 - Rangers love their mothers, beat Rays in finale

The Rangers honor their mothers by beating the Rays behind another stellar Wandy Rodriguez start

Jonathan Dyer-USA TODAY Sports

When the Rangers signed Wandy Rodriguez to a minor league deal hours before Opening Day, I would have bet money that he wouldn't have retired 34 batters total as a Texas Ranger in 2015. Between his start in Houston on Tuesday and this afternoon, Rodriguez retired 34 consecutive batters to break the all-time Rangers record.

Player of the Game: Well, gee. I wonder if retiring a franchise record 34 straight batters is worth player of the game status for Magic Wandy? Nah. Adrian Beltre drove in both Ranger runs. Adrian Beltre is the player of every game.
