Today he’ll have the chance to continue both streaks against the Houston Astros. He’ll have to square off against the Astros RHP Jarred Cosart who has an ERA of 4.50. He’s only batted against him twice in his career and has yet to record a base hit. Hopefully today he’ll change that.
The Texas Rangers play the Houston Astros tonight at 7:05 PM CDT in at Globe Life Park.
