60-78 - Rangers lose to Angels 3-1 in “Opener” opener

Rangers try bold new strategy of scoring way fewer than 18 runs

MLB: Los Angeles Angels at Texas Rangers Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

It turns out scoring just one run is not as many as scoring 18 runs and the Rangers therefore did not beat the Anaheim Angels in tonight’s baseball game as the Angels scored three times as many runs.

Player of the Game: Starting pitcher Jeffrey Springs allowed zero runs through two innings and then the dang Rangers lifted him for reliever Ariel Jurado even though Springs was cruising along! Did someone in the dugout call the bullpen on a goof?

Up Next: The Rangers will go with an actual starting pitcher tomorrow night with Mike Minor set to make the start. The Angels will also thumb their noses at innovation with LHP Andrew Heaney ready to take the mound on Tuesday. First pitch from Arlington is scheduled for 7:05 pm CT.
