Not even the powder blues could save ‘em

Good morning.

Jeff Wilson writes that the San Diego Padres came to Arlington and showed the Texas Rangers their place with a weekend sweep where the home team scored a total of four runs.

Sam Blum writes that Mike Foltynewicz had a solid outing for the Rangers on Sunday to help show why he was a bet worth taking.

Kennedi Landry notes that, despite being pinned with a loss, Foltynewicz tossed a quality start in his second chance of the homestand.

Blum recalls how the Padres came to town and derailed the Rangers’ season last year and how Texas will have to put the weekend behind them to help avoid a similar fate.

Landry writes about Isiah Kiner-Falefa being excited by the transition to starting shortstop thus far.

Kevin Sherrington notes that a lot of history has already been made at The Shed in its brief history and none of it is particularly favorable to the Texas Rangers.

And, Will Leitch names the biggest surprise for each team so far in 2021 and it’s easy to guess the guy for the Rangers because he got his own T-shirt.

Have a good day!
