The winning streak wasn’t meant to be

The Texas Rangers scored four runs and the New York Yankees scored seven runs.

This baseball game started out pretty great for the Rangers as they put three runs on the board in the bottom of the third inning and, with Mike Foltynewicz getting through the NY order once unscathed, it looked like they were well on their way to a second consecutive win.

However, a half inning later, the wheels came off for Folty as he allowed five Yankees runs in the top of the fourth. Texas got to within a run in the middle innings but after a few New York insurance runs, the Rangers couldn’t muster another rally.

Overall, it was a tale of two half innings tonight with the Yankees’ number rounder than the Rangers’.

Player of the Game: Former Yankees draftee Nick Solak went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and the Rougned Odor replacement also contributed two runs scored and two RBI.

Up Next: The Rangers and Yankees will battle to break the series tie tomorrow night. Texas is still undecided on their starter LHP Hyeon-Jong Yang will start for Texas, while Corey Kluber will pitch his second inning at The Shed but now with New York. Wednesday’s first pitch is scheduled for 7:05 pm CT.
