11-19 - Rangers come away on losing end of back-and-forth affair in Cleveland

The Rangers and Indians traded late inning blows only for Cleveland to pull away 7-5

MLB: Texas Rangers at Cleveland Indians David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

Go away forever, April 2018.

The lesson Rangers pitchers are once again forced to learn is that if you want to have a long and happy career, never aim to become the top starter in a Texas Rangers rotation, never become the Rangers closer, never win the Nolan Ryan Pitcher of the Year award, and never come back home to Arlington to pitch for you hometown Rangers.

Player of the Game: Robinson Chirinos tied the game in the top of the seventh with a solo blast off Jay Cutler-looking doofus Trevor Bauer to take Cole Hamels off the hook.

Up next: Doug Fister makes the start for Texas against RHP Mike Clevinger of Cleveland. First pitch from Progressive Field is once again bizarrely set for 5:10 pm CT.
