Well, the end of the season is almost here for the Texas Rangers, and I’m sure some of them are ready for the long season to end. As fans, I think we’re ready to hit the reset button as well. The Rangers lost their home series to the White Sox and got swept by Joey Gallo’s New York Yankees this week.

Here’s what happened from a week that saw the team go just 1-5.

Joey Gallo getting his first home run against the Texas Rangers

This highlight has to be bittersweet for fans as Joey Gallo hit his first home run against the Rangers. Hopefully, the front office takes this as a lesson to not trade a favorite franchise player again.

Or perhaps just re-sign him when he hits the open market after next season.

Corey Kluber denied no-hitter against Rangers

Thank goodness Kluber didn’t get his opportunity to really rub it in the Rangers front office’s face and get two no-hitters on the Rangers this season. You could only imagine the reaction from Ranger fans if he did.

Adolis Garcia’s throw from the outfield

Adolis Garcia probably made the throw of the season from the outfield on Wednesday The throw to home was clocked at 95.5 mph. Can’t wait to see more throws from Garcia like this in the future, as well as his superb defense in general.

Texas Rangers Afterthoughts

We are almost at the end of a very long and dreadful Rangers season. Fans have watched the team have their highs and their lows this year. Luckily, they also saw some players who could become the future of the franchise down the road.

This is the second to last weekly update for the season. The remaining games this season will be on the final update for the season.

It’s been amazing to follow some of our readers on Twitter and getting to discuss Rangers baseball during the season. It’s been an awesome first sports reporting job for me out of college and I can’t wait to cover the 2021 offseason and beyond for Nolan Writin’.
