The Texas Rangers have beaten the Seattle Mariners with a score of 8-2. They’ve got their first respectable win this Spring Training. This win snaps the team’s five-game losing streak.

The Texas Rangers showed much improvement on offense, as well as pitching. Let’s a take a look….

Offense: A total of 12 hits with only five strikeouts. Carlos Gomez went 2-for-3 with one RBI. Adrian Beltre made his Spring Training debut, going 0-for-2. Jonathan Lucroy, Shin-Soo Choo, Rougned Odor, and Mike Napoli all went a combined 2-for-10. Prospect Drew Robinson went 2-for-2, scoring one run, and registering 3 RBIs. Overall, an very good performance by the offense. Much better than the last few games.

Pitching: Allowed a total of eight hits, surrendered just two runs, and struck out five batters. In the last five games, pitching has been a big issue. It’s good to see pitching get a break. Tyler Wagner pitched 2.0 innings, allowing three hits, surrendering no runs, and striking out three. A better performance than his last. Connor Sadzeck earned the win, pitching 2.0 innings, allowing three hits, surrendering the only two runs, and striking one batter. Allen Webster, Alex Claudio, and Jose Leclerc all managed to earn a hold.

Texas is now 2-6 and they’re at the bottom of the Cactus League Standings. Nothing to worry about for now. There’s still an entire month of March for Spring Training. In any case, everyone needs to work on what needs to be worked on. Team needs to be ready for Opening Day.

Tomorrow, Texas will take on the Milwaukee Brewers.
