The last game of this Astros vs. Rangers series was a low-scoring affair, with the Rangers pulling out a 7-2 win at home. Despite the lopsided final score, the Astros and Rangers were tied heading into the 8th inning before Texas put up four runs to put the game out of reach.

Jose Altuve, Kyle Tucker, and Yordan Alvarez each had two hits for the Astros, while Evan Carter went 3/5 with two doubles for the Rangers. Leody Taveras also had a two-hit game and stole a base for Texas.

Neither starter factored into the decision, as Jon Gray went 3 2/3 scoreless innings for the Rangers, while J.P. France gave up three runs in 5 2/3 innings. Kirby Yates got the win out of the bullpen for Texas, and Jose Leclerc picked up the save.

Ronel Blanco Gets The Start For The Astros

Coming off a dominant start in which he threw a complete game shutout, Ronel Blanco and the Astros are on the road to take on the Texas Rangers. Blanco was fantastic in his first start of the season, as he went the distance and struck out 7 Blue Jays hitters while only allowing 2 hits and 2 walks.
