Rangers 5, Astros 0

  • That is a good way to come back from the break.
  • The Lance Lynn experience continues to surprise and surprise. Against a strong Astros team, Lynn worked a little on the first pair of innings, and there were some reasons to question how deep the game could go. It turns out that the answer was 7 closed innings, with 6 hits, 2 walks and a whopping 11 strikeouts. Lynn's effectiveness has dropped to 3.69 in the year.
  • Jose Leclerc threw an eighth goalless, and Chris Martin pitched a ninth without relief, and kept the drama minimized.

  • Texas jumped all over Houston starter Framber Valdez, chasing him with two outs in the first inning after hitting and scoring four runs. Chris Devenski entered and withdrew Shin-Soo Choo with the bases loaded to finish the first one, and Texas scored just once for the rest of the way.
  • Rougned Odor resumed where he left before the break, bending twice and walking. Shin-Soo Choo also had a couple of punches and a walk, and all the other Rangers took a hit.

  • There are three more left in the series, but Texas has set a good early tone today.
