The matchups say that Texas should not have beaten Boston 3 out of 4 so far this season. But they have.

Harper led off the bottom of the first with a home run. Boston would also load the bases with one out and Petrocelli got a sac fly RBI.

Burroughs led off the top of the second with a home run of his own.

Hand struck out Aparicio to begin the bottom of the second to record his 30th K of the season.

Harris looked to tie the game in the third with a single but Harrah was thrown out at home trying to score from second.

After three: Boston 2 Texas 1.

Nelson did tie the game in the sixth with his first home run of the season.

After six: Texas 2 Boston 2.

Frank Howard came up with a pinch hit sac fly in the seventh to give Texas the lead.

In the bottom of the seventh, Boston loaded the bases with two out and then Petrocelli drew a four pitch walk to bring in the tying run. Pinch hitter Rick Miller then drew a five pitch walk and the Red Sox had reclaimed the lead. Finally, Handstruck out Aparicio to end the inning.

Casey Cox came in to pitch the eighth for Texas with a runner on first and one out and he made sure Boston could not add to the lead

But the Rangers went down in order in the ninth to end the game.

Final score: Boston 4 Texas 3.

Very competitive matchup that just does favor Boston

Smith got the scoring going for Boston in the first with an RBI double. Yastrzemski added an RBI single.

Tiant was perfect through three.

After three: Boston 2 Texas 0.

An error broke up the perfecto in the fourth and Kubiak broke up the no hitter with a double to lead off the sixth. Another error led to Kubiak scoring the Rangers first run of the game. Nelson then tied the game with an RBI single.

After six: Texas 2 Boston 2.

Tiant struck out pinch hitter Tom Grieve to begin the eighth. It was K #70 on the season for Luis Tiant. With a runner on first and one out, Bobby Bolin replaced Tiant. Lovitto got a base hit but then had to leave the game with an injury. Nelson gave the Rangers the lead with an RBI double. Burroughs added an RBI single.

Horacio Pina was brought in to pitch the eighth and protect the two run lead. And Fisk tied the game with an RBI double after Pina hit one batter and walked another.

Ray Culp became the Red Sox pitcher to begin the tenth inning. And Paul Lindblad did the same for Texas.

With two out in the bottom of the tenth, Reggie Smith doubled for the third time in the game to set an AL record. But Fisk grounded out to end the inning and the game continued.

The new pitcher for the Red Sox in the twelfth inning was Bill F Lee. Mike Paul took the mound with two out in the bottom of the twelfth and he got the final out of the inning.

Hal King gave Texas the lead again with an RBI single in the fourteenth inning. Mincher then walked to load the bases with nobody out. Biittner added an RBI single to give the Rangers a two run lead.

Mike Paul then got the 1-2-3 to end the game.

Final score: Texas 6 Boston 4 14 innings.

Even more bad news for Oakland. Reggie Jackson suffered a strained rib cage muscle and could miss up to three weeks. He is listed as day-to-day.

It's easy to see why Chicago is 5-0 against Texas this season.

Howard got the Rangers on the board first with an RBI single in the first. Also in the first, Nelson got his 30th stolen base of the year. Ford then slapped down an RBI single as did Harris and Randle as the Rangers batted around the order in the first. Even Broberg got into the act with an RBI double. In his second at bat of the inning, Harrah knocked in a run with a single. Biittner did as well. In all, 12 batters came to the plate in the first. 7 scored. 9 got hits. There were no errors.

May led off the top of the second with a home run. Broberg ended the top half of the second by striking out Orta. It brought Broberg's K total to 60.

In the bottom of the second, the Rangers loaded the bases with nobody out. Harris added an RBI single.

Denny O'Toole took over pitching duties for the White Sox to begin the bottom of the third. The Rangers loaded the bases with two out but this time could not add to their lead.

After three: Texas 8 Chicago 1.

In the top of the fourth, Chicago took advantage of the third Rangers error of the game as May brought in the run with a groundball out.

In the bottom of the fourth, Harris was caught stealing. It was the 20th time this season, Hermann threw out a would-be base stealer.

In the fifth, Howard added an RBI with a sac fly. Billings then added an RBI single to make it where all nine Texas starters had at least one hit in the game. Harris followed up with his fourth hit of the game to drive in his tenth run of the season.

After Broberg led off the bottom of the sixth with a double, Chicago brought in Rich Gossage to pitch. Biittner brought home Broberg with a sac fly.

After six: Texas 12 Chicago 2.

Chicago loaded the bases with two out in the top of the eighth then Hermann drew a walk to bring in a run. Casey Cox then came in and got the final out.

Mike Paul came in to pitch the ninth for the Rangers and he closed the book on the Rangers first ever win over the White Sox.

Final score: Texas 12 Chicago 3.

The matchups suggest that it is not likely that we will see a repeat of the series opener.

Allen got the scoring going right away with an RBI single in the top of the first. Chicago then loaded the bases with two out and Johnstone cleared them with an inside-the-park grand slam. That brought Johnstone's RBI total on the season to 40.

Nelson singled in the bottom of the first to stretch his hitting streak to 11 games.

The Rangers loaded the bases with two out in the bottom of the third and Lovitto put them on the board with an RBI single.

After three: Chicago 5 Texas 1.

Chicago made a pitching change in the bottom of the fifth with a runner on first and two out and brought in Steve Kealey and Kealey got the final out.

After six: Chicago 5 Texas 1.

Taking the mound for Texas in the seventh was Casey Cox. Rich Gossage did the same for Chicago.

A streaker ran out onto the field in the top of the eighth and got levelled by the first base umpire.

Mike Paul was brought on in the ninth. Chicago loaded the bases with two out but Kelly had to leave the game with an injury. Andrews then added a 2 run single.

Terry Forster pitched the ninth for Chicago. And he ended it with the 1-2-3 inning.

Final score: Chicago 7 Texas 1.

A huge advantage to the White Sox in the pitching matchups makes the Rangers task even more daunting in the series finale.

Chicago took no time loading the bases with nobody out in the first. Melton grounded out to bring in a run and May did the same. Stanhouse then ended the frame by striking out Hermann to record his 50th K on the season.

Howard looked like he would pick up an RBI single in the bottom of the first but Harrah was thrown out at home trying to score from second.

Orta hit a one out solo home run in the top of the second.

After three: Chicago 3 Texas 0.

Melton added to Chicago's lead with an RBI single in the fifth.

After six: Chicago 4 Texas 0.

Mike Paul replaced Stanhouse in the seventh with a runner on first and two out and he got the third out

King put Texas on the board with a solo home run in the eighth. One out later, Terry Forster took the mound and he got the final out.

Paul Lindblad took the mound for Texas in the ninth. Andrews bid for an RBI single was thwarted when Orta was thrown out at home trying to score from second.

Nelson led off the bottom of the ninth with a single to bring his hitting streak to 12 games. But a 4-6-3 would end the game and just in time as Forster looked to have hurt his shoulder.

Final score: Chicago 4 Texas 1.

Texas has owned the underachieving Athletics so far this season but the matchups suggest that should change.

The pitchers dominated the early going as Gogolewski did not allow a hit in the first three innings.

After three: Oakland 0 Texas 0.

Rudi broke up the no hitter with one out in the fourth. Hendrick then broke up the shutout with a two run homer, putting him at double digits in RBI for the season.

In the fifth inning, Campaneris added an RBI single and Tenace an RBI double.

Nelson made it 13 games in a row with a hit with a single in the sixth but he was thrown out trying to steal second.

After six: Oakland 4 Texas 0.

Gogolewski struck out Meoli to begin the seventh inning. Gogolewski now has 70 K for the year. Jim Shellenback finished the frame for the Rangers.

Pepitone got an RBI double in the eighth. Hendrick added an RBI single as did Meoli.

Casey Cox pitched the ninth for Texas.

In the bottom of the ninth, Biittner broke up the shutout with a two out RBI single.

Final score: Oakland 7 Texas 1.

There is no reason to believe that Oakland will leave Texas with a losing record. However, the Rangers and Athletics have split the eight games played between them so far this season.

Campaneris led off the game with a single to stretch his hitting streak to 11 games. In the bottom of the first, Nelson singled to run his hit streak to 14 games.

Blue struck out Burroughs to end the third with a runner on third to record K #100.

After three: Oakland 0 Texas 0.

The pitchers continued to dominate.

After six: Oakland 0 Texas 0.

After Burroughs led off the bottom of the eighth with a single, Bob Locker replaced Blue on the mound and he sent the game into the ninth with still no score.

Oakland loaded the bases with one out in the top of the ninth anf Horacio Pina was brought in to pitch and Pina got out of the jam without giving up a run.

Locker began the bottom of the ninth by striking out King to record his 20th K on the season.

Texas got 9 hits in 9 innings but no runs.

After nine: Oakland 0 Texas 0.

In the top of the tenth, Reggie Jackson broke the tie with a two run homer.

Diego Segui came in to pitch the bottom of the tenth. Burroughs struck with a run scoring double but Ted Kubiak grounded out to end the game with two men on

Final score: Oakland 2 Texas 1 10 innings

Amazing the record the Angels have compiled seeing as the matchup actually favors Texas. Just barely. The series has been close so far this season with California winning 4 and the Rangers taking 3.

A Burroughs single in the bottom of the first looked like it would put Texas on the board but Harrah was thrown out at home trying to score from second.

Broberg had a no hitter through three.

After three: California 0 Texas 0.

Kosco got the Angels first hit with one out in the fourth. A walk and an error later and the bases were loaded. Spencer then tagged a grand slam.

In the bottom of the fifth, May struck out Broberg to record his 90th K of the season.

After six: California 4 Texas 0.

Broberg returned the favor in the 7th, striking out May for his 70th K on the season.

Burroughs made sure the Rangers avoided the shutout as he hit a solo shot in the eighth. Lloyd Allen immediately came in to replace May. Allen entered the game second in the AL in saves. Allen finished off the last two innings to give the Angels their fifth straight win and the Rangers their fifth straight loss.

Final score: California 4 Texas 1.

Again, the matchups favor Texas. But, so far, the results have favored the Angels.

Foster started off by striking out Maddox to record his 40th strikeout of the season.

In the top of the second, Torborg got an RBI single as another error came back to haunt the Rangers. Foster followed up with a double but Torborg was thrown out at home trying to score from first.

The Angels loaded the bases with two out in the third, thanks to another Texas error. But Howard robbed Cardenas of a base hit to prevent any damage.

After three: California 1 Texas 0.

The Rangers loaded the bases with two out in the fifth but Howard grounded out to end the inning.

After six: California 1 Texas 0.

Paul Lindblad pitched the ninth for Texas and got the 1-2-3.

With a runner on first and one out in the bottom of the ninth, Don Rose replaced Foster on the mound for California and he got Nelson to hit into the game ending 5-4-3.

Final score: California 1 Texas 0.

A brutal mismatch does not bode well for the Rangers to end their losing streak. The series has been close this season with the Royals winning 4 and Texas winning 3.

Stop me if you've heard this before. The Rangers committed an error in the first inning and the Royals loaded the bases with two out. Fortunately for Texas, Schaal popped out to end the inning without a run scoring.

The Rangers loaded the bases with one out in the top of the third. Nelson then cleared them with a triple to break the 20-RBI barrier on the season.

After three: Texas 3 Kansas City 0.

In the top of the fifth, Gogolewski scored for the second time in the game, this time on a wild pitch.

In the bottom of the fifth, the Royals put runners on the corners with two outs and the Rangers made a quick pitching change and brought in Mike Paul and he got Rojas to fly out to end the inning.

After six: Texas 4 Kansas City 0.

Texas had a chance to add to the lead but Suarez was thrown out at home trying to score from second after a single by Nelson.

Casey Cox came in to pitch the bottom of the seventh. Schaal broke up the shutout with an RBI double. Rojas tried to add an RBI single but Schaal was thrown out at home trying to score from second.

Burroughs got the lead back to 4 by leading off the eighth with a home run.

Al Fitzmorris replaced Dal Canton in the ninth. And Horacio Pina replaced Cox.

Final score: Texas 5 Kansas City 1.

It sure seems the Royals should be better than just .500 against the Rangers.

Maddox quieted the crowd with a 3 run homer in the third.

After three: Texas 3 Kansas City 0.

Splittorff struck out the side in the top of the fourth.

Walks and an error helped KC load the bases in the fifth. Mayberry then walked to bring in a run. Piniella tied it with a 2 run single. And Oliver gave the Royals the lead with an RBI single.

Splittorff recorded his 70th K on the season, striking out Burroughs in the sixth.

After Stanhouse walked Splittorff to begin the bottom of the sixth, he was replaced by Paul Lindblad.

After six: Kansas City 4 Texas 3.

Lindblad struck out Oliver to end the seventh for his 20th K on the season.

Mike Paul became the Rangers pitcher in the eighth inning.

Tom Burgmeier took the mound for the Royals in the ninth. He walked one but that was all.

Royals look good for the sweep.

The Rangers avoided allowing one run in the first when Burroughs threw Patek out at home in the first inning. But Mayberry did pick up an RBI when he beat out a double play grounder. Schaal added a two run single to give the Royals a 3 run first.

After three: Kansas City 3 Texas 0.

Hand struck out Patek with runners at the corners with two out to bring his K total on the season to 40.

Hedlund struck out Suarez in the fifth to bring his K total on the season to 60.

An error by the Rangers led to a run in the bottom of the fifth. And Schaal added a two run homer.

Nelson led off the top of the sixth with his own home run.

Jim Shellenback took over pitching duties for the Rangers with one out in the bottom of the sixth.

After six: Kansas City 6 Texas 1.

Casey Cox came in to pitch the seventh.

In the end, the Royals out-hit Texas 16-6.

Final score: Kansas City 6 Texas 1.

RF Larry Biittner vs Richie Scheinblum Advantage Royals
Gaining a split in this series would be an overachievement considering how bad a mismatch it is.

Piniella put the Royals on the board with an RBI single that could have been 2 runs but Mayberry was thrown out at home trying to score from second.

In the top of the third, Drago set Bosman down on strikes to record his 90th K of the season. Drago did not allow a hit in the first three innings.

Mayberry picked up an RBI with a sac fly in the bottom of the third. Piniella was then robbed of another RBI when, this time, Otis was thrown out at home trying to score from second after a Piniella single.

After three: Kansas City 2 Texas 0.

Kirkpatrick added to the Royals lead with a 2 run homer in the fourth.

After six innings, Drago still had a no hitter going.

Jim Shellenback took over pitching duties for the Rangers in the bottom of the sixth.

After six: Kansas City 4 Texas 0.

Nelson broke up the no hitter with a leadoff single in the seventh.

In the eighth, Schaal hit a 2 run homer to bring his RBI total to 30 on the season. Mike Paul took the mound one batter later with a man on first and nobody out and he kept any more damage from being done.

Drago then finished off the complete game shutout.

Final score: Kansas City 6 Texas 0.

The Rangers have lost 9 of their last 10 and go to Cleveland to face the Indians for three games. Cleveland has the worst record in all of baseball but has won 4 of their last 5.

The Reds lost 2B Joe L Morgan for the year due to a torn calf muscle.

The Cubs lost SP Rick Reuschel for the year because of a torn ulnar collateral ligament.

Even with the worst record in the majors, the matchups favor the Indians.

Broberg had to leave in the second inning after injuring his foot. Paul Lindblad took over pitching duties for the Rangers with a runner on first and one out. And he got the final two outs of the inning.

The Rangers latest scoreless streak reached 15 innings.

After three: Texas 0 Cleveland 0.

Mincher ended that streak in the fourth with a sac fly RBI.

With two out in the bottom of the fifth, Horacio Pina replaced Lindblad and got the final out.

After six: Texas 1 Cleveland 0.

After a leadoff single by Harris in the seventh, Tom Hilgendorf replaced Lamb on the mound. Hilgendorf only lasted two batters before he also left the game with an injury. With runners at the corners and one out, Vince Colbert became the new Indians pitcher. Colbert struck out Pina to record his first K of the season but then walked Maddox to load the bases. Harrah then walked on four pitches to collect his 20th RBI of the season. An infield single by Nelson scored another run. Burroughs then reached 50 RBI on the season, clearing the bases with a 3 run double to complete the 5 run inning.

Pina struck out Unser in the bottom of the seventh to record his 30th K of the season.

The pitcher for the Indians in the ninth was Dick Baney. Pina remained on the mound for Texas and completed the shutout.

Final score: Texas 6 Cleveland 0.

A much closer matchup on paper that still favors Cleveland but these matchups on paper have not gone Cleveland's way on the diamond.

In the top of the second, King doubled his RBI output of the season with a 3 run homer. Still in the second, the Rangers loaded the bases with one out but Nelson grounded into the 4-6-3.

Fosse led off the bottom of the second with a home run to put Cleveland on the board. McCraw followed up with a double but injured himself sliding into second and had to leave the game. Dunning then singled for his first RBI of the season.

In the third, Alex Johnson tied the game with an RBI single. Cleveland went on to load the bases and took the lead on a wild pitch.

After three: Cleveland 4 Texas 3.

Harrah tied the game with an RBI single in the top of the sixth. Nelson then belted a 3 run homer and the Rangers once again had a 3 run lead. That ended the day for Dunning as he was replaced by Tom Hilgendorf.

Casey Cox took the mound for Texas in the bottom of the sixth and got the 1-2-3.

After six: Texas 7 Cleveland 4.

Dick Baney took the mound for the Indians in the eighth. The Rangers threatened but failed to add to the lead.

Mike Paul was brought in to pitch the eighth for Texas. And he ended the inning by recording his 30th K of the season, striking out Unser.

The Rangers loaded the bases with nobody out in the top of the ninth. And failed to score.

Duffy got an RBI double in the bottom of the ninth. But it wasn't enough as Texas again beat the Indians.

Final score: Texas 7 Cleveland 5.

Once again, on paper, the Indians should be favored. But the Rangers have just had their number.

Chambliss got the Indians going with a 2 run single in the first.

Suarez got a groundout RBI in the second to put Texas on the board. And Cleveland lost Bell to an injury in the same frame.

Harris tied the game with an RBI single in the third.

After three: Texas 2 Cleveland 2.

A run scoring single by Harrah gave Texas the lead in the fourth. The Rangers went on to load the bases with one out and then Howard added a 2 run single for his 30th RBI on the season. Harris came up with another RBI single as the Rangers put four on the board in the fourth.

Vince Colbert took the mound for the Indians in the fifth. Again, the Rangers loaded the bases with one out and Nelson crushed a grand slam to bring his RBI total on the season to 30.

Nettles had an RBI double in the bottom of the fifth.

Tom Hilgendorf took the mound for Cleveland in the sixth.

After six: Texas 10 Cleveland 3.

In the seventh, the Indians had runners at first and second and one out and the Rangers went to the bullpen and brought in Jim Shellenback and he struck out the next two batters to end the inning.

Dick Baney took the mound for Cleveland in the eighth. He got two out and then Steve Mingori came in to get the final out.

Duffy got an RBI single in the bottom of the ninth and an error gave the Indians another run before the final out of the game was made.

Final score: Texas 10 Cleveland 5.

If only they could play the Indians all year. The Rangers have to travel to Baltimore to face the Orioles for three games. Baltimore leads the AL East by a half game over Milwaukee.

Cubs CF Rick Monday suffered a ruptured disc and will miss the rest of the season.

SP George H Stone of Atlanta will miss the rest of the year because of a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament.

Rumor has it that Atlanta 1B Orlando Cepeda is on the trade block.

It's no surprise that this is a huge mismatch on paper. It is also no surprise that the Orioles have won 5 out of 6 against Texas.

Stanhouse had trouble finding the strike zone in the first inning and Baltimore loaded the bases with nobody out. Powell then got an RBI single but the second runner, Belanger, was thrown out at home. Robinson then singled up the middle but Johbson, like Belanger, was thrown out at home trying to score from second. So all the Orioles got out of it was a single run.

Burroughs then tied it in the top of the second with a leadoff home run.

Nelson gave the Rangers the lead in the top of the third with an RBI double. Burroughs then singled but this time it was Nelson thrown out at home trying to score from second.

After three: Texas 2 Baltimore 1.

A Nelson throwing brought in the tying run in the bottom of the fourth. Stanhouse then struck out Alexander to reach 60 K on the season.

Howard tried to give Texas the lead back in the sixth with a would-be RBI single but, for the second time in the game, Nelson was thrown out at home trying to score from second.

After six: Texas 2 Baltimore 2.

Paul Lindblad took the mound for Texas in the seventh. Johnson then went yard with two men on to break the tie. This put Johnson over the 20 mark in RBI for the season. Mike Paul immediately replaced Lindblad.

Grant Jackson came on in the ninth to close it out for the Orioles and he got the 1-2-3.

Final score: Baltimore 5 Texas 2.
