The Rangers are home for a quick weekend homestand against the Orioles. In tonight’s game Texas will face RHP Jorge López. This will be his third start of the 2021 season and he hasn’t faired so well.
Adolis Garcia's first major league homer, a two-run shot in the 10th inning, gave the Texas Rangers a 6-4 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday night. Garcia drove a 1-2 pitch from Cody Reed (0-1) the other way into the right-field stands. The native of Cuba leaped into the air and pumped his fists as he rounded first base, setting off a celebration in the Texas dugout as well.
Garcia to the rescue The Rangers blew a lead for the third time in the game in a messy seventh inning in which Benjamin and Brett de Geus walked four batters. The Rays scored only once, but they did so on a play in which Jose Trevino and Leody Taveras committed throwing errors. Trevino attempted to pick off Brett Phillips at second base, but the throw went into center field.
