Texas Rangers Seek Series Win over Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday

Texas continues a three-game road series with the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday night at Tropicana Field.

The Texas Rangers, fresh off a series-opening victory, are back at Tropicana Field on Saturday night to take on the Tampa Bay Rays in Game 2 of the three-game series.

Texas (63-81) won Friday’s game 4-3, improving its record in one-run games to 14-32 (the losses are a franchise record for one-run games). First baseman Nathaniel Lowe, who began his career as a Rays first baseman, homered in the game. His home run, along with Corey Seager’s two-run double, proved to be the difference in the game.

Martin Perez won his 12th game of the year, while the Rangers sent former Texas starter Corey Kluber home with the loss.

The Rangers are now 12-18 under interim manager Tony Beasley. The Rangers on Friday announced the festivities to honor Tom Grieve on his retirement from 55 years with the Rangers organization. These festivities will take place at Globe Life Field on Sunday, April 12.
