Texas Rangers Week 18 Recap: Trades and an Improved Team?

It was a very chaotic week. And there were baseball games.

Season record: 38-67

Week 18 record: 3-2

Series record: 10-21, 3 split

The week was a wild one for the Rangers.

They split the first series back home against the Arizona Diamondbacks, winning the first game and dropping the last.

In his final game as a Ranger, Joey Gallo hit a game winning three-run home run. It was obvious he knew a trade was imminent with his post game interviews.

The next day the Rangers traded Kyle Gibson and Ian Kennedy to the Phillies.

After a day off, the Seattle Mariners came to town for a weekend series and Jonah Heim stole the show. The Rangers lost Friday’s game but thanks to Heim’s back-to-back walk off home runs, Texas won their first series since the June 29th series against Oakland A’s.

The Rangers will cap off this home stand with a four game series against the Los Angeles Angels. The Angels don’t currently have a rotation set for that series and it’s questionable if Shohei Ohtani will pitch in this series as he has a bruised thumb.
