Last year’s National League Cy Young award winner threw a no-hitter last night against Cincinnati.
Last year’s American League Cy Young award winner threw a thirteen-hitter last night against Texas, allowing a three-game sweep over the cross-state rival Houston Astros 7-4.
Since the Astros moved to the American League West, the Rangers have swept nine of the nineteen series they have played.
It’s a trend Rangers fans can get used to.
Ian Desmond’s power finally showed up last night, hitting a three-run homer in the first and a double in the third. While he got a few soft hits earlier in the series, it was nice to see him hit a fastball hard. Twice.
That’s a trend Ranges fans can get used to as well.
Martin Perez (0-1, 3.44) vs. Jose Quintana (1-1, 2.55)
