76-63 - A new nadir as Rangers swept emphatically by Astros

Right into the molten lava beyond rock bottom

The Texas Rangers scored three runs but the Houston Astros scored twelve runs.

Texas was outscored 39-10 in this series. Adolis Garcia hurt his knee and left the game. Max Scherzer lasted 60 pitches after his forearm tightness exit last outing, but not before a grand slam as the final of three home runs and seven runs allowed.

At some point the Rangers might want to deploy the parachute.

Player of the Game: Jose Leclerc for being the first Rangers pitchers to have a scoreless outing (unless you want to count Austin Hedges) in this entire series. It took until the first out of the 6th inning of tonight’s third game.

Up Next: The penultimate day off of the season arrives tomorrow before very many days off soon enough.
