The Rangers Are 47-34

Nick Tepesch was fishy, the offense generated just 4 hits, and Kyle McClellan threw one fateful pitch in extra innings to send Cincinnati to a 6-4 victory on Saturday.

Tepesch was surprisingly inefficient, throwing 91 pitches in only 4.0 innings on the bump. Despite allowing 6 hits and 2 walks, he managed to limit the overall damage by coaxing 7 strikeouts from Reds’ hitters.

Outside the consecutive doubles from Elvis Andrus and Nelson Cruz in the 7th — subsequently tying the game, 4-4 — the Rangers scored their other three runs during an obscure sequence in the 3rd inning; Reds’ 1st baseman Joey Votto made two separate errors, the shortstop made another, and Texas came out of it with 3 runs scored on 1 hit and no walks.

I would extend this recap, but I’m not really in the mood to delve into a loss right now, especially because we’ve officially hit the halfway marker in the season, and I’m working on a report for 1st half grades.
