Texas Rangers are a Rallying Machine

3 of 8

Wednesday, April 16, 2014: Texas Rangers defeat Seattle Mariners 3-2

PITCHING: Yu Darvish again did what he does best, pitch wonderfully. Even with a bloody thumb this was his final line: 7.0 IP, 7 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 8 K’s with a 0.82 ERA. Darvish’s thumb became so bloody at one point that instead of tossing the ball back to Chirinos, he met the ump halfway to show him that it was ONLY blood! I was laughing over that one. Take a look.


This is the game where the “real” rallying began. The Texas Rangers are trailing the Mariners 2-1 bottom of 9th with two outs bases are empty. Kevin Kouzmanoff scores on a wild pitch that brings the game tied 2-2.

Leonys Martin hits a soft line drive bringing home Mitch Moreland for the walk-off single.
