Rangers 2, A's 1

  • Nick Martinez pitched well.
  • Tanner Scheppers pitched well.
  • Shawn Tolleson pitched well.
  • Mitch Moreland hit a home run that went a long way.
  • The Astros lost.
  • The Rangers are now 2 games back of first place in the West
  • The Rangers are now in sole possession of the second Wild Card spot.
  • The A's have the worst record in the American League.
  • Martin Perez goes on a rehab assignment tomorrow.
  • Luis Ortiz was throwing in the upper-90s for Hickory today.
  • Yohander Mendez threw 2 more scoreless innings today for Hickory, meaning he has 21.2 IP this season with no runs allowed.
  • Rougned Odor had two more hits for Round Rock.
  • Ryan Rua had a hit and a walk and is that much closer.
  • And Texas drafted Mike Matuella today.
  • We should all be happy today.  Baseball is good right now.  Let's enjoy it.  This is a time when baseball is fun.
