Rangers End 1st Half On A Great Note!
After going on a stretch where their offense was non-existent, the Rangers go into the All-Star break with hot bats!
Coming back to Arlington from Chicago, not winning a game there, the Rangers were looking for answers. Those answers weren’t there in Friday’s game, losing 5-1.
But on Saturday, in front of a national television audience, the Rangers’ bats were lost, but now found, getting 10 hits in their close 4-3 victory over the Twins!
On Sunday, the Rangers’ had 14 hits, in another close 4-3 victory!
For Texas, the game really started in the bottom of the 9th inning, with their backs up against the wall, Ian Kinsler came home via a groundout from Elvis Andrus, then with runners on the basepaths, Michael Young sends a ball to right, sending home Adrian Beltre, and Nelson Cruz. This tied the game at 3!
The Rangers were unable to send a 4th runner home in the bottom of the 9th, but were able to do so 3 innings later! Ian Kinsler singles again to send home centerfielder Craig Gentry!
Final score 4-3!
The Rangers along with the many other major leaguers who won’t be heading to Kansas City for the All Star game, have a few days off! They play on Friday, when they go on the road to face Seattle!
