Texas Rangers Week 9 Recap: Trouble on the Road

Some ups and some downs this week

MLB: Texas Rangers at Los Angeles Angels Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Season record: 25-25

Week 9 record: 4-2

Series record: 8-5, 3 splits (April home series against Oakland is TBD since Saturday’s game was postponed until June 8th)

The Rangers made it back to .500 this week, at one point they were even above .500 and second place in the AL West. The sweep against Seattle earlier in the week and a five game winning streak was to thank for that, but it was short lived after dropping the final two games this weekend against the Angels.

Last week we got to enjoy and talk about Willie Calhoun getting called up and playing well. That was also short lived as he was put on the 10-day IL Wednesday for a left quad strain after being pulled toward the end of Tuesday’s game.

Delino DeShields was brought up from Nashville, then sent back on Saturday after the Rangers activated Elvis from the 10-day IL.

The series loss against Los Angeles continues the Rangers inability to win on the road, four of their five series losses have been on the road and they’re 8-17 in away games (17-8 at home.)

They’re now headed to Seattle for a three game series before they come home for a 10 game home stand which includes a Saturday June 8, double header. Game one being the postponed game from April against the A’s.
