Colby Lewis Angry After Bunt from Colby Rasmus

Colby Lewis Angry After Bunt from Colby Rasmus

Texas Rangers/MLB (NEW YORK) –  They may share the same first name, but Texas Rangers starting pitcher Colby Lewis and Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Colby Rasmus have two entirely different opinions on what transpired during the 5th inning of Saturday’s contest between their respective teams.
Lewis and Rasmus exchanged words after Rasmus laid down a bunt single with two outs and the Blue Jays leading 2-0.  The Rangers were playing the shift, but Lewis still wasn’t too pleased with Rasmus’ decision to bunt.
“I told [Rasmus] I didn’t appreciate it,” Lewis told MLB.com. “You’re up by two runs with two outs and you lay down a bunt. I don’t think that’s the way the game should be played.”
After the contest, Rasmus said he was not sure why Lewis would take offense to his decision to lay down a bunt.
“I’m just trying to help my team and he didn’t like it — so sorry about it,” Rasmus said to MLB.com. “I’m not here to try to please the other side, I’m here to help my team, and I had an opportunity where I could, and I took advantage of it.”
Lewis took the loss for the Rangers Sunday and fell to 6-7 on the year.  Rasmus is hitting just .223 for the Blue Jays this season.

Angels Win Seventh Straight, Beat Rangers

Angels Win Seventh Straight, Beat Rangers

Otto Greule Jr/Getty Images(ARLINGTON, Texas) — Mike Trout’s 22nd home run of the year proved to be more than enough on Friday as the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim beat Texas 3-0. It was the seventh straight win for the Angles (55-37) who have also won eight of their last nine.
Garrett Richards was masterful on the hill, scattering five hits in his seven innings of work for Los Angeles. The righty is now unbeaten in his last eight starts, winning seven in a row, with a 1.27 earned run average. Richards (11-2) has not lost since a May 30 defeat at Oakland.
Trout’s homer was the first hit of the night for the Angels as Nick Tepesch had retired the first 10 batters he faced for the Rangers (38-55). Tepesch (3-5) then gave up two more runs in the top of the seventh inning before ultimately being pulled in favor of Neftali Feliz. Texas has lost 12 of its last 13 and currently sits with the worst record in the bigs.
Adrian Beltre did extend his hitting streak to 15 games for Texas but the team was 0-for-6 with runners in scoring position.

A’s Have Best Record in MLB After Rolling Past Rangers

A’s Have Best Record in MLB After Rolling Past Rangers

Brian D. Kersey/Getty Images(OAKLAND, Calif.) — For the first time since May 22, Sonny Gray allowed fewer than three runs, helping the Oakland Athletics top the Texas Rangers 4-2 Wednesday and grab the best record in baseball. Gray pitched seven innings allowing six hits, two runs, two walks while striking out seven.
“I don’t think there really is a difference other than I was able to make pitches,” Gray said. “That’s probably it. People sometimes forget that baseball is a pretty hard game and there’s going to be some rough patches that you’re going to go through.

Oakland (44-28) started its scoring in the third inning when John Jaso doubled to center off Rangers starter Nick Tepesch allowing Craig Gentry to score. Jaso crossed home plate just a few batters later when Josh Donaldson slapped a single to center.

The Rangers (35-37) tied the game in the fifth when Shin-Soo Choo hit a two-run single, but the A’s answered back in the bottom of the inning scoring twice to take the lead for good.

Sean Doolittle pitched a perfect ninth to earn his ninth save of the season.

Rangers Sign 1B Carlos Pena to Minor League Contract

Rangers Sign 1B Carlos Pena to Minor League Contract

Thinkstock(ARLINGTON, Texas) — The Texas Rangers signed first baseman Carlos Pena to a minor league contract and assigned him to Triple-A Round Rock, the team announced on Tuesday.
The 36-year-old Pena split last season between the Houston Astros and the Kansas City Royals, where he batted .207 with eight home runs and 25 RBIs. During his 13 year big league career, Pena has hit 25 or more homers in a season six times, including a career high 46 with the Tampa Bay Rays in 2007.
Pena returns to the club that originally selected him with the 10th overall pick in the 1998 MLB draft. Since that time, he has played for the Rangers (2001), Oakland Athletics (2002), Detroit Tigers (2002-05), Boston Red Sox (2006), Rays (2007-10, 2012), Chicago Cubs (2011), Astros (2013) and Royals (2013).

Chisenhall Hits Three Homers, Drives in Nine in Indians Win

Chisenhall Hits Three Homers, Drives in Nine in Indians Win

Rick Yeatts/Getty Images(ARLINGTON, Texas) — Lonnie Chisenhall went 5-for-5 with three home runs and tied a team record with nine runs batted in, helping to power the Cleveland Indians to a 17-7 win against Texas.
According to Major League Baseball, it is the first time since RBI was made a statistic in 1920 that a player had that exact state line.
Chisenhall began his historic day with a simple base hit in the first inning that gave the Indians (33-31) a 2-0 lead. He followed it up in the second inning with at two-run blast, upping his personal RBI total to three. Cleveland led 8-1 after two innings, chasing Rangers (31-33) starter Nick Martinez.
In the fourth, Chisenhall belted his second two-run homer of the game to give his squad a 12-4 advantage. He later doubled home a run in the sixth before lacing a three-run shot just inside the right field foul pole for his fifth hit, making it a 17-6 ball game.
“I know a day like today is kind of a once-in-a-lifetime thing,” said Chisenhall. “I’m enjoying it as much as I can. I don’t know the history of it, who’s done it in the past.”
Chris James was the only other player in Indians history to drive in nine runs in a single game when he did it on May 4, 1991 in a 20-6 win over Oakland. Chisenhall becomes the first MLB player, and fourth overall, since Fred Lynn in 1975 to get five hits, three homers and nine RBI in a single game.

Rangers Place 1B Mitch Moreland on DL

Rangers Place 1B Mitch Moreland on DL

Sarah Glenn/Getty Images(ARLINGTON, Texas) — The Texas Rangers placed first baseman Mitch Moreland on the disabled list on Sunday.  
Moreland, who was batting .246 with just two homers this season, is expected to undergo ankle surgery on Wednesday and will likely miss three months.
“It’s to the point where I’m hurting the team, hurting myself trying to go out there and make something happen,” Moreland said of his injury. “There’s no lower half. I’m doing everything I can and trying to battle through it, but it’s to the point where it’s affecting me trying to go out and play. It’s hurting pretty bad.”
“The surgery, I tried to fight it off until the end of the year,” he continued. “I knew I was going to have to have surgery. They told me you can do everything you can to try to get to the end of the year. I can’t do it any more. I’m going to try to get back healthy and get ready to go.”
Donnie Murphy, who is hitting .220 with 11 RBI’s, will take Moreland’s spot on the roster.
“He’s done everything he could have done,” general manager Jon Daniels said of Moreland. “He’s fought through it, but it’s become apparent it’s limiting him.”

Prince Fielder Facing Season-Ending Surgery

Prince Fielder Facing Season-Ending Surgery

John Williamson/Getty Images(DETROIT) –  If the Texas Rangers are going to contend in the American League this season, they may have to do it without slugger Prince Fielder in the fold.
Fielder is expected to have season-ending fusion surgery next week to repair a herniated disc in his neck.
The 30-year-old Fielder visited with spine specialist Dr. Drew Dossett on Thursday morning after his symptoms got progressively worse.  It was recommended that Fielder have surgery to take care of the problem. If he decides to have it, there’s a three-to-four-month recovery period that would end the Ranger’s 2014 season.
Fielder received a nerve-root injection over the weekend and took a few days to rest.  He was expected to return to the lineup at the beginning of the week, but he was scratched from Tuesday’s game after he said he felt some weakness in his left arm while trying to hit in the batting cages.
Before the injection, Fielder had played in 547 consecutive games, the longest active streak in the majors at the time. He was batting .247 with three homers and 16 RBIs before the injury.
The Rangers acquired Fielder in an offseason trade from the Detroit Tigers in exchange for second baseman Ian Kinsler.
