The Rangers haven't played a road game in 11 days and they still have the most road wins in baseball.— Christopher Fittz (@apoplecticfittz) August 8, 2015
The Mariners are one of two teams with a worse home record than the Rangers.— Christopher Fittz (@apoplecticfittz) August 8, 2015
Add that together and, because it's the 2015 Texas Rangers where nothing makes sense, I am bracing for a Rangers loss tonight.— Christopher Fittz (@apoplecticfittz) August 8, 2015
The 2015 Rangers are so weird. A team that just took 7 of 8 against three teams that will all likely be in the playoffs lose a road game to the worst team in the division with their newly acquired top arm on the mound despite having the best road record in baseball.
The Rangers are now 1-6 against the Mariners but 8-4 against the Astros.
Player of the Game: Bobby Wilson drove in a couple of runs on a double to give the Rangers a lead they wouldn't hang on to.
