The Rangers return to Arlington with their proverbial backs against the wall. They need to figure out a way to win one of the next three games against the Blue Jays. Or else.
It’s do or die time.
How did they get into this predicament? Simple, the offense has yet to show up.
So far, the Rangers are hitting just .198 as a team in this first round. The heart of the order has not been a factor whatsoever.
It doesn’t help that Beltre has played just three innings this series. But he is not alone on the AWOL list. The fact is, nearly everybody has been missing in action.
Moreland and Hamilton are hitless. Choo, Fielder, Beltre, Napoli, and Andrus have just one hit each.

Carry on, Texas.
