At least the Rangers manufactured all of their three runs without the need of a hit, right?! That's what has been missing, for sure.
Kyle Seager did the Rangers in in the end, as usual. I could have been having a fever stroke from baseball anger but it appeared the home run hit a Rangers fan sitting in the front row in right field square in the testicles.
Yep. Kyle Seager hit a go-ahead home run in a game the Rangers were winning 3-0 and it found a Rangers fan and hit him right in the penis.— Christopher Fittz (@apoplecticfittz) May 7, 2017
I'm not making this up. That's actually what happened. I feel like this was a spiritual experience. God is real and he is angry.
Player of the Game: Andrew Cashner did that Andrew Cashner thing where he allowed a base runner in every inning but somehow, six innings later, you notice he hadn't allowed any runs. He did however walk the leadoff hitter in the bottom of the seventh and that runner eventually scored. A final line of 6 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 3 BB, and 5 Ks will play. This bullpen, however...
Up Next: The Rangers head down to San Diego for a couple of games at Petco Park before the two teams reconvene in Arlington for another two game set. Nick Martinez will make the start in the opener for Texas as the former college infielder will get a chance to wield the bat thanks to NL rules. Opposite Martinez will be my least favorite pitcher ever, RHP Trevor Cahill. First pitch from America's Finest City is scheduled for 9:10 pm CT.
