The Texas Rangers were lucky that they didn’t lose Adrian Beltre for a significant amount of time today. In the sixth inning today Beltre was running after a fly ball when Elvis Andrus came over from his position to try to catch the ball as well. Andrus slid to make the catch and looked like he was going to have a nasty collision with Beltre when Adrian wisely tried to jump over him. Unfortunately Beltre still clipped Andrus shoulder with his foot and took a nasty spill. Thankfully nobody got hurt and it’s now simply a blooper. (H/T The Score) The post Adrian Beltre & Elvis Andrus collide appeared first on My Sports Rumors.
BEST OF MAXIM
All season long we have seen videos and gifs of Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre and shortstop Elvis Andrus enjoying the game like a couple of guys should. However, as often as they two have messed with each other you had to know that there would be a time when they would end up colliding.
Well that time has come.
To be fair, the two were...
ARLINGTON, Texas It would be stretch to say that Rangers manager Ron Washington planned for two ninth-inning homer, but the changes he made to the lineup did pay off in Monday's 4-3 win over the Angels.
The biggest change was batting Ian Kinsler third instead of his usual leadoff spot. Kinsler has batted leadoff in 75 games this season, but in the No. 3 spot he drove in both...
CLEVELAND (AP) -- The Texas Rangers say they're investigating a claim by pitcher Tanner Scheppers that he was attacked in downtown Cleveland last week.
Scheppers said he was "sucker-punched by several young males" while going out to dinner a few blocks from the team's hotel Thursday night. He sustained facial cuts and bruises, and said his attackers ran away.
Earlier today reports began circulating that the Texas Rangers would entertain offers for closer Joe Nathan. While the idea of a team fighting for a playoff spot trading away its ninth inning guy seems like a stretch the Rangers have engaged in talks with the Detroit Tigers.
FOX Sports’ Jon Morosi reports that the Tigers and Rangers spoke about Nathan this weekend. While a trade...
Teams in need of a closer soon may have a stunning new possibility
to consider. The Texas Rangers have had internal discussions about
trading All-Star right-hander Joe Nathan, according to major-league
Texas Rangers catcher Geovany Soto hit a walk-off home run to beat the Angels during Monday night’s game. Soto’s home run was the second off Angels pitcher Ernesto Frieri in the ninth. A.J Pierzynski hit the first.
The Angels led 3-0 until the Rangers scored their first run in the bottom of the sixth.
The Rangers are 57-49.
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Geovany Soto hit a game-ending homer for Texas after A.J. Pierzynski had already gone deep in the ninth off Los Angeles Angels closer Ernesto Frieri, and the Rangers snapped a four-game losing streak with a 4-3 victory Monday night.
Pierzynski led off the ninth by pulling a pitch into the right-field seats, his 11th homer this season snapping a 4-for-27...
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Geovany Soto hit a game-ending homer, the second long ball in the ninth inning for Texas off Los Angeles Angels closer Ernesto Frieri, and the Rangers snapped a four-game losing streak with a 4-3 win Monday night.
A.J. Pierzynski led off the Texas ninth with a homer to right. Nelson Cruz followed with a single off Frieri (0-3) before David Murphy grounded...
Here’s one reason you wouldn’t think the Rangers would consider trading closer Joe Nathan: they’re only a game and a half out of the second American League wild-card slot, despite a current team-wide slump. Plus, their division isn’t entirely out of reach. Here’s a second reason you wouldn’t think the Rangers would consider trading Nathan: just a short while ago, they...
Have the Texas Rangers given up on 2013? They have fallen to five game out of the American League West division title race, but they are only 1.5 games out of the second A.L. Wild Card spot. Still, though, according to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, teams looking for a closer may have what Rosenthal calls "a stunning new possibility to consider."
Rosenthal reports that...
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Michael Bourn homered to lead off the first inning and Justin Masterson took a shutout into the eighth inning, outdueling Texas' Yu Darvish in the Cleveland Indians' 1-0 win over the Rangers on Saturday night.
Masterson (12-7), an American League All-Star, struck out eight and allowed five hits in 7 2-3 innings. That was enough to beat Darvish (9-5), who...
It was reported yesterday that the Texas Rangers were making
closer Joe Nathan available in trade. While the price for the veteran
right-hander is high, it hasn’t stopped the Detroit Tigers – who have been tied
to bullpen help throughout the season – from checking in with the Rangers,
according to Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports.
Sources: Tigers and Rangers have talked...
MONDAY, 7/29: Jered Weaver vs. Matt Garza: It's so damn hot!
But seriously... we can already see it coming. Weaver has never been able to pitch in the Texas heat and I'm pretty sure that isn't just narrative. I am anxious though to see if the Halos can ruin Garza for the Rangers much like they ruined Dempster for them.
