The Rangers went 3-2 on their just completed road trip. Now, they come back home with a better road record than home record.
After being shut out yesterday in New York, the Rangers are now 7-6 on the road but only 4-9 at home.
Last year they had a .444 winning percentage on the road, just .296 at home. The Shed has not been kind to them.
The good news is, their next six are against the Royals and Red Sox. They are two of the four teams with worse records in the American League than the Rangers.
Kansas City is 9-17, Boston is 10-19.
These are games they should win, series they should win. The Rangers just need the bats to be here when they get here. They certainly weren’t on the road with them.
Corey Seager was 1-for-19 on the recent road trip. Adolis Garcia was 3-for-20. Nathanial Lowe was 1-for-17.
That’s the heart of the Rangers order, the engine that drives in the runs. They went a collective 5-for-56. That’s hitting .089. That’s not getting it done. And they still went 3-2
But it’s no wonder the Rangers we gasping for runs. They scored just seven runs in their previous four games. Yet, they won two of them.
So now they come back home, where they have had trouble winning since they opened The Shed in 2020.
The next six games could be a huge turning point in how this season is going to go.
