Bah gawd! The sonsabitches pulled it off!
After an entire season of failing to complete virtually any late-inning comeback rallies, in a time when the Rangers perhaps needed one the most, Texas ended their 0-for-the season streak when trailing after eight innings.
By putting a two-spot on the Mets in the 9th, after scoring a run apiece in the 6th and 8th, the Rangers overcame a 3-0 deficit that lasted for the majority of the contest while the team looked listless through most of the affair despite a quality effort from starting pitcher Jon Gray.
For once, however, pecking away at an opposing bullpen paid off and the Rangers claimed the opener.
Perhaps a turning point?
Player of the Game: Nathaniel Lowe’s two-out, two-run bases loaded eventual game-winner ranks as among the more cathartic hits in some time for the Rangers.
Up Next: They Rangers will turn to LHP Andrew Heaney in the hopes of completing a series win while the New York will opt for LHP Jose Quintana.
The Tuesday evening first pitch from Citi Field is set for 6:10 pm CT and will be aired on BS Southwest.
