I guess Gerrit Cole gave a sufficient demonstration of what all the money the Rangers are going to dump on him this winter can buy.

lol just kidding no one is going to willingly choose to pitch for the Texas Rangers.

Player of the Game: Ronald Guzman hit a ferocious three-run home run. That was pretty neat. Too bad it was 6-1 at the time. Shame it became 11-4 afterward.

Up Next: The Rangers hope to avoid getting swept on Sunday as RHP Adrian Sampson takes the mound for Texas against RHP Corbin Martin making his MLB debut. First pitch in the finale from Minute Maid Park is scheduled for 1:10 pm CT.
