Series By The Numbers: Rangers @ Blue Jays

Back-to-back series losses, and the Rangers can only be thankful that the rest of the American League West is far behind. I jest. This series had a bunch of frustrating events with most of them coming in the second game when the bullpen couldn’t hold on to a big lead. The Rangers now head to Cleveland for a three game series against the Indians. Hopefully Adrian Beltre and Josh Hamilton will join them.
