The Rangers play the Tigers in Detroit and I haven’t been this excited since Lin-Manuel Miranda released “In The Heights.”
Texas, losers of eight straight, will start Mike Foltynewicz (2-9, 5.91 ERA). We had Toronto when they scored 10 runs, yes 10, in just 1 ²/₃ innings in Folty’s last start.
Detroit, which actually has a winning record when it plays in Motown, counters with Tyler Alexander (1-1, 4.40 ERA). Alexander has appeared in 27 games, starting only three, including his last outing when he was removed after the Twins scored twice over three abbreviated innings. Taking Texas for 10 units.
Robbie Ray and the Blue Jays have treated us well. Wednesday night, not so much. Ray watched three balls sail over the Sahlen Field wall and the Red Sox clipped the Blue Jays 7-4. Vlad Guerrero hit No. 32 for the losers. Fun’s over. Back-to-back losses take our account to -807 antetokounmpos.
