The Texas Rangers Fall 7-1 to the Seattle Mariners
The Texas Rangers were looking to build off a series win over the Houston Astros as they welcome the Seattle Mariners to town on Monday night. This game marked the return of starting pitch Colby Lewis who had not made a major league start in over 21 months. “I thought he was outstanding,” Rangers manager Ron Washington said. “He didn’t walk anybody and he pounded the strike zone. The runs they got, they earned. He had a good breaking ball and spotted his fastball well. Welcome back, Colby.” Seattle would spoil his return though as some costly errors proved to be too much for Texas to overcome. Ron Washington’s club would have three errors total in the game which would give Seattle four unearned runs in the win. Texas will continue their four game midweek series with the Mariners today with first pitch set for 7:05pm from Globe Life Park in Arlington and can be seen on FOX Sports SW.
