Boy, was that not pretty. Some ugly baseball (and some unlucky baseball, at least compared to what we’ve been seeing) for the Rangers led to them being swept for the first time this season (albeit in a two-game series.)
They need to keep going, however. Next is Oakland and if they should be swept again, their lead in the division will drop to just two games. Hard to believe that Oakland is the team currently on the Rangers’ tails.
Win Probability Added (WPA) (Starting Pitchers in bold)
When the team leader in WPA for a series is a reliever who pitches one inning, you had a pretty rough series.
