Rangers lose home run derby. 195 comments

Nomar Mazara homers in his fourth consecutive game. The Rangers record is seven straight, set by Kevin Mench.


Major League Baseball staged its 2018 Home Run Derby at the Ballpark in Arlington last night.

Texas pitching served up four to the Red Sox hitters. Boston pitching gave up one to Rangers hitters.

It was another one of those games all to frequent in major league baseball lately where it’s home run or bust.

Unfortunately, more of those home runs were hit by Red Sox.

In one of those freaky quirks of baseball, Bartolo Colon allowed four leadoff home runs—in the second, fifth, sixth, and seventh. Other than that, he pitched well. But Rick Porcello pitched better.

Both teams, in fact, managed just three non-home run hits. The Rangers had only three at-bats in the entire game with runners in scoring position, and those came in the second following a Nomar Mazara double.

Welcome to Baseball 2018. Press one to see a strikeout. Press two to see walk. Press three to see a home run. For all other inquiries, please hold on the line and we will get back to you when we can.
