The Rangers won’t see their second seven-game losing streak of the season as they beat the Angels for the fourth time in four games in 2020. If only they were all Mike Trout’s team.
Tonight’s starter Lance Lynn showed a good example for why he could have helped a team with actual aspirations at the deadline as he went seven innings and allowed one run on four hits while striking out six Halos to pick up the win.
(Don’t fret, tank commanders. Pittsburgh, Kansas City, and Washington all also won today while Boston split a doubleheader.)
Player of the Game: Probably not Eli White but I wanted to show him some love since he’s been up for like a week now and hasn’t gotten his first big league hit and I’m worried that if the world returns to normal he might go back to Nashville and then what if he never play in the majors again? He’ll probably be sad that he never got that hit. I hope Eli White gets a hit soon but this wasn’t 100% pity as White still drew a walk, collected an RBI (a career first!), and scored a run despite he and I sharing the same career batting average.
Up Next: Kyle Cody should be stretched out a little in his second career start for the Rangers while Julio Teheran will get the call for the Angels. First pitch from Wednesday’s contest at The Shed is scheduled for 7:05 pm CT.
