I see folty velo is back up to where he used to live in the mid 90s and hitting 96/97 quite a bit. He was gonna be a total gas can if it remained way down in lower 90s where he was last season. How has he looked overall? I see he went 7 innings last time out vs the pads, even tho he had 3 walks and only 3 k’s still nothing to sneeze at holding the pads to 1 run on 2 hits. He has allowed 3 hrs already this year in 11 innings of work, that could be concerning especially with the walk rate up (well down from last year but I’m not counting 2020 much). O’s offense has kinda been struggling, take out 2 games from their home stand and they only scored 13 runs in the other 5 games and they sporting a sorry .590 ops vs rhp on the year. If he gonna succeed now would be the time. Rangers pretty cheap if we have confidence in folty?

Lopez is incredibly hittable and not like O’s world beaters. This a very winnable game I would think.

Was 0-0 in the ninth I watched most of this one too.

They got a quality start and Kennedy looked real good out the pen.

Don’t know the result but the umpire was pretty bad with the strike zone today, Holbrook I think is the name

a very well pitched game by both teams, Lowe with a single in the tenth helped us win 1-0 our record now stands at 7-9
Gibson went 8.0 innings throwing 97 pitches 66 of them for strikes he gave up 4 hits no runs walked none and struck out 6
Kennedy struck out the side in his inning
King got the W (1-0)

What’d you think about the strike zone? Few complaints but I thought it was spotty and y’all

Got the series. Hope you bet it.

Bombers on TV tonight. Painful.

I was pretty shocked folty pitched so well against halo’s, good job not allowing baserunners so all the bombs were solo shots! That was best Quintana had looked this season also but he walked a bunch of guys so could only make it 5 then rangers went to work on laa pen. Without a doubt a Nice series for them! Awesome job if you bet them.

Garcia went 2-5 knocked in 3
Lowe went 2-4 knocked in 1
Gallo went 0-2 yet got 1 RBI walked 3 times

we struck out 12 more times, this is still a glaring problem went 2-7 with RISP and left 7 on base

a well deserved day off as we head to Chicago to face the WhiteSox for a weekend series
I’d say yesterday’s win was the biggest one of the young season

Adolis!

Sneaking up on the .500 mark again...going to be a test over the next 19 days; 4 game sets with the BoSox and Twins to start the month of May. Glad we're heading into it with a bit of momentum.

Let's remember to check the forecast when Arihara is on the mound next week in Minny...dude does not like being chilly. Blowing on his hands after every pitch; he couldn't wait to get back to the climate controlled comfort of the locker room.

that day is coming sooner than later

I feel bad saying if but rangers feel a bit overmatched by a red hot Sox team coming in and throwing a lefty tonight for which we know rangers have struggled mightily to hit! Perez hasn’t been very good but rangers struggles vs lefties may offset that. I actually thought -120 felt a tad cheap for sox here.

I hope for big things from Gibson as well.

I believe the weekend games against the BoSox have flipped the script in the locker room...I was pretty worried that we'd develop a loser mentality after the two gut punch losses to the White Sox and the Angels series.

Hopefully we can hang on to the loose, "nobody expects us to win anyway" attitude for a while.
