73-52 — Martin Perez’s bad fourth sinks Texas

MLB: Texas Rangers at Tampa Bay Rays Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Perez took a 2-1 lead into the bottom of the fourth. At the end of the fourth inning, it was a 6-2 Rays lead. Texas rallied to make it 6-4, and had some chances to tie it, but fell short.
