8-17 - Rangers flunk Triggs exam, lose to A’s 3-2

Adrian Beltre is hurt. Cancel sports.

MLB: Boston Red Sox at Texas Rangers Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Trevor Cahill. Brett Anderson. Dallas Braden. Jarrod Parker. Dan Straily. Kendall Graveman. Daniel Mengden. Andrew Triggs.

Player of the Game: Cole Hamels pitched into the seventh inning and allowed a couple of runs. You can’t really ask for more than that from a Texas Rangers starting pitcher in 2018 but the Rangers chose tonight to lay their latest dud against an Oakland Athletics’ starter.

Up Next: Doug Fister returns from injury and will need to pitch the game of his life since the A’s will turn to Kendall Graveman who is unhittable when facing the Rangers despite his 10.47 ERA in 2018. The Rangers will try to avoid the sweep beginning at 7:05 pm CT.

Whatever. Adrian Beltre is hurt. None of this matters. The Baseball Gods have taken everything.
