Martin Perez, four days ago, after allowing seven runs to the Twins: “I’ve discovered a flaw where I am tipping my pitches.”
Rangers coaching: *wanking motion* “Maybe try shutting up and throwing it where we tell you to regardless as to whether or not they know what’s coming?”
Martin Perez, this afternoon, after allowing one run to the Mets: “I was tipping my pitches, but thanks.”
Player of the Game: I mean, Joey Gallo hit ANOTHER dong and walked three times but he’s going to be PotG in this space like 100 times next season so let’s give props to Marteen Perez who might have just pitched the best game he’s tossed since returning from TJS.
‘Teen’s line: 8 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 0 BBs, 5Ks all on a crisp 89 pitches.
Up Next: The Rangers have the day off tomorrow for a flight home to begin a homestand with a series against the Houston Astros. It will be fun to watch Joey Gallo hit dingers off those chumps.
