Three wins in a row.

Corey Seager connects for a game-winning three-run homer in the eighth.

Are the Rangers finding their swagger? After pounding the Royals on Saturday for fifteen runs, they shocked them with three runs in the final three innings with a 3-2 come-from-behind, late-game, wake-up-from-a-coma victory.

They pretty much matched that effort last night, down 2-0 for seven innings of futile offense and even more futile defense. But once the Athletics removed their lefty starter (thank you, Pitch Count Baseball), the Rangers bats came alive. More importantly, Corey Seager’s bat came alive. By time the eighth inning rolled around, the Rangers had had just three baserunners. None touched second.

Then Josh Smith entered the game as a pinch hitter and drew a walk. One out later, Leody Taveras singled. One more out later, Corey Seager drove a 3-2 pitch over the wall in center. That made it 3-2. They eventually won it 4-2.

Two come-from-behind-at-the-very-end wins. Three wins in a row to match their longest winning streak of the season. Another quality start from their rotation. 

And the Rangers leapfrogged back into first place in the West.

If that’s not Swagger, at least it Swagger Lite.
