Rangers 10, Tigers 5

  • Yay! Back in the victory column!
  • And a very nice pitch from Dane Dunning today. Not so much from John King, but let’s not dwell on that.
  • 12 swings and misses on 64 Dunning throws today. Its good.
  • Just one hit and one walk awarded today by Dunning in five innings of work. The shot was a homerun, so it was bad, but it was a solo homerun. The lone run in five innings lowered his ERA for the year to 4.22.
  • Dunning left after just 64 game pitches to give John King a few innings as they continue to stretch King for a potential starter role. It didn’t go so well for King today. He struck out three at bat in two innings, but allowed a solo homerun in the sixth and a three-run homerun in the seventh. The three-point shot tied the score at five.
  • Since the Rangers came back and took the lead in the bottom of the seventh, however, and Spencer Patton and Josh Sborz held the Tigers off the table in the eighth and ninth, respectively, King has taken credit for the win. .
  • Abolish victory!
  • All kinds of offensive excitement for the Rangers as well. John Hicks hit the left field foul post with a moon home run that had a 40 degree launch angle. This is his fourth homer in three games played for Texas. It’s not what I expected when they called Hicks.
  • Hicks also had a single today to go with his home run. Brock Holt also had a home run. Just like Adolis Garcia, who also took two walks. Our man Joey G has had one and a pair of rides.
  • David Dahl, meanwhile, had a three-hit night with two doubles. Could he get things back on track? Will he show any signs in the player’s future that we were hoping he might be when he signed?
  • Perhaps? And maybe? I’m not really sure.
  • Dane Dunning hit 92.2 mph on his lead today. John King hit 94.1 mph. Josh Sborz hit 97.3 mph. Spencer Patton hit 94.7 mph.
  • John Hicks’ bizarre home run was the game’s high exit speed, at 108.0 mph. Nate Lowe had exit speeds of 106.2 mph and 103.0 mph on one and one groundout. David Dahl’s doubles were 103.2 mph and 100.2 mph. Isiah Kiner-Falefa had a double of 102.9 mph and a groundout of 101.1 mph. Adolis Garcia’s home run was 102.1 mph, while Brock Holt’s was 104.2.
  • We’re all excited now, aren’t we? Are you looking forward to a game tomorrow afternoon with a chance to win the series and start the day on a high note? Of course we are.
