62-84 - Rangers had eight hits! Lose 7-1

At least a no-hitter was out of the question early in this one as Texas drops to a season-worst 22 games under .500

MLB: Texas Rangers at Los Angeles Angels Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Texas, with a loss tonight in the series finale in Anaheim, is 1-5 so far on this road trip through California.

In fact, the Rangers are now 3-9 in their last 11 games in the Golden State since August 20 with two of the wins coming in Mike Minor starts and the only other one coming in that miracle win in San Francisco where Rougned Odor deposited a ball into McCovey Cove after the Giants booted the game-ending out.

In fact, in fact, to really drive home the desolate state of rotation, the Rangers have mostly stopped winning games unless Minor makes the start.

Since the Rangers beat the Angels in a four-game set in mid-August, they’ve gone 6-14 and three of those wins have come in games started by Minor.

Player of the Game: Well, um, Joey Gallo hit his 36th dong of the year. There was that.

Up Next: The Rangers have Thursday off before beginning the final interleague series of the season against the San Diego Padres at Petco Field over the weekend.
