16-17 - Hunter Pence 4, Pirates 5 as Texas suffers NL defeat

Hunter Pence tried to guide the Rangers as an NL ambassador but alas the style of play was far too disturbing for Texas to overcome

There’s never been a good game of National League-style baseball in the history of the sport.

Player of the Game: It makes sense that Hunter Pence would account for all of the Rangers runs in tonight’s game since he played his entire career in the National League before being freed and landing in Texas. While the rest of the Rangers were abhorred by the abomination they were witnessing, Pence was in his element.

Up Next: The Rangers must play another game in Pittsburgh and Shelby Miller drew the short straw with a start for Wednesday against RHP Nick Kingham for the Pirates. First pitch from PNC Park is scheduled for a ghastly 11:35 am CT.
