Texas Falls 2-1 to the Yankees on Tuesday Night

The Texas Rangers lost a heart breaker late on Tuesday night as they fell to the New York Yankees 2-1.  Rangers starter Nick Martinez was terrific in his first outing off the disabled list as he lasted 5 1/3 innings, allowing three hits and a walk while striking out three, leaving after 67 pitches.  “In the fourth … fifth inning, he started breaking up with his mechanics and scattering the ball,” Washington said of Martinez. “That was a sign of fatigue. He hadn’t thrown in three weeks, but he did a great job, pounding the strike zone and using all of his pitches.”

Offensively for Texas, they struggled again although they did manage 11 hits.  Unfortunately they could not get the majority of those guys home as they left eight runners on base while going 1 for 9 with runners in scoring position.  “We had some opportunities that could have kept it from going to the 14th inning,” Washington said.  “A lot of good stuff out there — we played solid defense and pitched well.  We didn’t give it away; they just beat us.”

Texas will continue their mid-week series against the Yankees tonight as they continue to try and improve the worst record in baseball.  First pitch for this game is set for 6:05pm and can be seen on FOX Sports SW.
