The Rangers hang in there another day, four straight wins and hope
Maybe the Astros came to town at just the right time to save the Rangers. Speaking of the Astros, this is the two-week anniversary of their last victory. During this little 0-12 run, they’ve been outscored 69-19.
The Reds, Indians and Rangers all swept ’em at a time when all three teams needed victories. The Rangers were hanging by a thread when the Astros came to town on Monday. They got the sweep, and then kept going with a Jurickson Profar walk-off home run to beat the Angels on Thursday.
So they begin this final weekend of the season trailing the Rays by two games and the Indians by one. The Rays and Indians are on the road in Toronto and Minneapolis for their final series while the Rangers have three more against the Angels. The Rays and Indians begin the day with seven-game winning streaks.
