The Rangers Beat the Yankees by a score of 4-2
The Texas Rangers were able to pull out the win last night over the New York Yankees as they continue to try and improve the worst record in baseball. Texas sent Miles Mikolas to the mound as he had one of his most productive outings of the year. He went just over seven innings while giving up two runs on four hits on his way to earning the win, which was his first of the season.
“Mikolas did a great job; we certainly needed that,” Washington said. “If we can get our starters to go deeper in the game, it would certainly take the pressure off the bullpen. It was nice to see him get out of that situation with the ground-ball double play. That was the biggest play of the game. It was a chance for them to open it up, but he hung in there and made pitches.”
Offensively, Texas continued to struggle as they could not take advantage of five Yankee errors, but did enough to seal the win. Shin-Soo Choo led the way from the leadoff position in the line as he had Texas’ only extra base hit. He also had one of the Rangers four RBI’s.
Texas will continue their four game mid-week series with the Yankees up in New York today with first pitch for that game set for 6:05pm. You can see all the action on FOX Sports SW.
