3 Things Around The Game

1 – Cookie

2 – Sandlin

Nick Sandlin finally had a bad outing, only going 1/3 of an inning, giving up a 2-run shot to Adolis Garcia

3 – Singles only

The Guardians got six hits on Wednesday night, all singles.  Cleveland only had two at-bats with runners in scoring position. 


Game Summary

Jon Gray pitched into the seventh inning, allowing just four hits, as the Texas Rangers defeated the Cleveland Guardians 4-0 on Wednesday night, snapping their five-game losing streak.

Gray (2-1) threw 94 pitches over 6 1/3 innings, allowing only one runner past first base. Since his rocky season debut, he has limited opponents to seven earned runs in 48 2/3 innings across eight starts.

The defending World Series champion Rangers (23-22) have not fallen below .500 since Bruce Bochy took over as manager last season. This victory marked their seventh win this year when playing at .500.

Marcus Semien hit a two-run homer in the fifth inning, with the ball grazing the glove of a leaping Estevan Florial in left field. Adolis García followed with a two-run homer in the sixth, his team-leading 10th of the season, after Nick Sandlin walked leadoff batter Nathaniel Lowe. Sandlin had replaced starter Carlos Carrasco (2-4).

José Leclerc, David Robertson, and Kirby Yates completed the six-hit shutout.

The Rangers, who led the AL with 209 runs entering Wednesday, had managed just 10 total runs during their five-game skid. Gray escaped a jam in the sixth inning by inducing a double-play grounder from Josh Naylor with runners at the corners.

The first-place Guardians (27-17), who had won three consecutive games, went 8-8 over 16 days leading up to Thursday’s off day, including a 6-5 record after losing Steven Kwan, the league’s leading hitter, to a hamstring strain.
