The Texas Rangers sure looked like a team coming back home from a two day pitstop on the west coast after a long road trip and then an immediate game tonight with no rest as they put a couple of unearned runs on Lance Lynn’s ledger after commiting a couple of costly errors.
Still, the Rangers had a chance to win this one anyway, as it went into the final frame tied 3-3, but Jose Leclerc allowed a couple of Mariners to cross the plate in the top of the ninth and Texas couldn’t match in their half of the frame as they open this series with a loss.
Player of the Game: Willie Calhoun hit one to the upper deck for his 16th home run of the season. Willie Calhoun has played in 57 games this season.
Up Next: The Rangers and LHP Kolby Allard will take on the Mariners and LHP Marco Gonzales on Friday night. First pitch from The Ballpark is scheduled for 7:05 pm CT.
