The Texas Rangers Defeat the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Again as They Move Within One Game of the Oakland Athletics
The Texas Rangers have for the most part owned the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim this season. They have won nine of their eleven meetings with the Angels this year and last night was much of the same. The Rangers were able to pull out the win with a final score of 8-3 on Tuesday night.
Rangers starter Yu Darvish (Pictured on the Left) was awarded the win last night as he went seven innings while giving up just three runs on eight hits. Darvish finally had some run support which has not been the case for the majority of his starts. The offense was able to compiled eight runs on twelve hits lead by Adrian Beltre and Elvis Andrus who both had at least two hits and an RBI in the win. Darvish had this to say about the start, “It was probably the worst outing I’ve had this year. But I was able to keep the game close and contribute to the win.”
Texas will play game three of their midweek series against the Angels tonight from Angel Stadium of Anaheim with first pitch set for 9:05 pm on FOX Sports SW. They will look to gain some more ground on the division leading Oakland Athletics as they are now just one game back.
