The Rangers have been a bad baseball team in 2021 and they were especially so away from Arlington this season. That’s all over now as Texas completed their 81st road contest with a win to finish with an appalling record of 24-57 away from home.
There are six games remaining on the docket, all at The Shed, and the Rangers must win them all to avoid losing 100 games in a season for the first time since Spiro T. Agnew was like a week away from resigning as Vice President and DJ Kool Herc had just started the genre of music called hip hop over the summer.
Player of the Game: While also going 2-for-5 with a double and an RBI, Adolis Garcia collected two Rangers rookie records today.
Garcia now holds the title for the highest number of total bases for a rookie in franchise history with 256 and his 15th outfield assist is tops for first year Rangers and one more than the 14 that George Wright had in 1982.
Up Next: The Rangers will enjoy their final day off of the season before beginning the final homestand of the year as they welcome the Angels to Arlington for a series starting on Tuesday.
RHP A.J. Alexy is the expected starter in the opener against a pitcher to be named for Anaheim. Tuesday night’s first pitch from The Shed is scheduled for 7:05 pm CT.
