The Texas Rangers had one hit today. And they scored zero runs. And they lost the series to the White Sox. A sixth inning single by Shin-Soo Choo was the only thing keeping the Rangers from ultimate embarrassment. That’s pretty much the gist.
Smell ya later, Players’ Weekend.
Player of the Game: Brock Burke didn’t seem quite as sharp — especially early on today — as he was in his debut back in Arlington but the young lefty had arguably better results as he went six innings and allowed just one run while holding the White Sox to three hits. Burke walked only one and struck out five Chicagoans.
Two starts, 12 innings, one run allowed, and zero wins to show for it so far for Burke but those will hopefully start to come if he continues to pitch this well.
Up Next: The Rangers have a well-earned day off on Monday before traveling out to Anaheim for a brief two-game series against the Angels beginning on Tuesday.
