Texas defeats Tampa Bay behind Montgomery’s strong outing


The Texas Rangers had the first laugh in the American League Wild Card Series.

Texas won Game 1 of the series against the Tampa Bay Rays 4-0 on Thursday at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida, USA. The win gave them a one-game lead.

Starter Jordan Montgomery was dominant. He shut down the Tampa Bay bats for seven innings of six-hit ball, striking out five and walking none.

The Texas defense helped him, too. In the first inning, left fielder Evan Carter made a diving catch of Isaac Paredes’ fly ball to end the inning.

Montgomery joined Hosmer’s ranks. In the bottom of the second, he threw down a bunt attempt by Jose Siri.

Meanwhile, Texas chipped away at the deficit. In the second, with runners on first and third, Josh Young hit a sacrifice fly to bring in the first run.

In the fifth, leadoff hitter Corey Seager led off with a double and later scored on a wild pitch by starter Tyler Glasnow.온라인카지노

In the sixth, the gap widened again. With runners on first and second, Seager singled up the middle. A throwing error by the center fielder was followed by a throwing error, allowing both runners to come home.

Seager finished 2-for-4 with a double, one RBI and one run scored, while rookie Carter went 2-for-2 with a double, one run scored and two walks.

Tampa Bay was unable to capitalize on its opportunities at the plate, going 1-for-6 with runners in scoring position and stranding seven.

Glasnow, the starter, allowed four runs (three earned) on six hits and five walks with eight strikeouts in five innings.
