4. 128. 3. 126. Final

The Texas Rangers fell, Saturday afternoon, to the Chicago White Sox in extra innings. The game was a close contest with pitching struggles ending it.

On The Mound

The Texas Rangers handed the ball to Colby Lewis Saturday afternoon as they searched to even up the series against the Chicago White Sox. Lewis put out a more than quality start going 6 innings against Chicago giving up just one run on six hits. Lewis struck out three and walked four in the outing but did his job by putting the Rangers in a place to win the game.

Out of the bullpen numerous pitchers came in for relief. Tony Barnette, Sam Dyson, Tom Wilhelmsen, Phil Klein and Nick Martinez all pitched. Sam Dyson recorded his first blown save of the season giving up two runs on three hits in the eighth inning. Wilhelmsen threw a scoreless ninth and Klein threw a scoreless tenth inning. Martinez took the loss, giving up a bases loaded single to Jose Abreu that scored the game running run in the walkoff win.

At The Plate

The Texas Rangers put together a seven hit team performance on Saturday but were unable to string together enough runs to pick up the win. DeShields, Mazara, Beltre, Desmond and Andrus all recorded a single hit on the game and Rougned Odor had a two hit performance. Ian Desmond got the scoring going for the Texas Rangers with a solo shot in the second inning, his second of the year.

Defensive Gem

Nomar Mazara had an absolute web gem when he robbed Todd Frazier of a walkoff homerun in the ninth in right field.
