13-26 - Losing streak hits five straight as Rangers fall to Mariners 4-3

New, comments

The Rangers did lose again today

MLB: Texas Rangers at Seattle Mariners Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

The Texas Rangers scored three runs and the Seattle Mariners scored four runs.

After Jordan Lyles walked the first two hitters he faced, making sure that Kyle Seager would hit with at least a runner on base, this one felt doomed. After Lyles got a double play to provide our customary dollop of hope, Seager hit the most predictable two-run home run of all time to immediately quash all optimism.

Kyle Seager has never not hit a home run when it could ruin the Texas Rangers.

From there, the Rangers got three solo home runs throughout the afternoon to account for their scoring but a fellow Kyle — Kyle Lewis — also went deep before Seattle added an insurance run in the seventh.

The Rangers have now lost five consecutive baseball games, are a season worst 13 games below .500, and have lost six straight to a miserable Mariners team.

Player of the Game: This big beefy gent named Joey Gallo sent this ball all the way to Walla Walla:

Also, Leody Taveras hit his second dinger and robbed his second home run of the season. I like Leody.

Up Next: The Rangers will close out this series against the Mariners with Kolby Allard set to take the mound for Texas against LHP Marco Gonzales for Seattle. First pitch Monday’s finale from T-Mobile Park Safeco Field is scheduled for 3:10 pm CT.
