Starting Lineups

LIVE Game Notes

  • Top 1st – Logan Webb Pitching
    • First pitch solo home run for Shin-Soo Choo off Webb, not a good start *yikes*
      • Choo’s HR off Webb was hit at 106.9 miles per hour
    • 4-3 DP from Dubon to Flores gets 2 outs after Webb walk to Solak
  • Bottom 1st – Mike Minor Pitching
    • Slater with a base hit to lead it off, Flores K and Yaz with a swinging bunt, Pence hard grounder
    • SCORE: Rangers 1, Giants 0
  • Top 2nd
    • Calhoun with a hard hit ball for a single, Andrus flies out and Chirinos K’s
    • Webb escapes a first and third jam (Kiner-Falefa singled) with a strikeout against Choo
  • Bottom 2nd
    • Longoria with a double off the wall! Solano moves him over with a sac fly and Ruf’s bloop single scores him!
    • SCORE: Rangers 1, Giants 1
  • Top 3rd
    • Solak strikes out his second time in the order, but Solano makes an error to allow Odor to reach. Gallo with a solid double down the line, Odor scores from first.
    • SCORE: Rangers 2, Giants 1
  • Bottom 3rd
    • Dubon strikes out. Slater and Flores fly out
  • Top 4th
    • Andrus strikes out. Chirinos walk and Kiner-Falefa should have hit into a double play, but under further review, they said Dubon’s throw did not make it in time to first.
    • Choo HBP, could be trouble with 2 outs. Webb walks Solak to load the bases. Webb is pulled for Menez who gets Odor to pop out
  • Bottom 4th
    • Yaz starts things off with a ground-rule double! Probably would have been a triple if it stayed in. Pence moves Yaz over, but Longo’s check-swing bunt quickly makes it 2 outs. Solano pops out and no runs are scored
  • Top 5th – Menez pitching
    • Gets Gallo to fly out after throwing 3 straight balls. Frazier swinging bunt, 2 outs.
  • Bottom 5th

    • SCORE: Giants 4, Rangers 2
  • Top 6th
    • Anderson in to pitch for the Giants and retires the side
  • Bottom 6th
    • Longo and Solano fly out. Ruf walks out and he scores on Tromp’s double. Tromp scores on a Dubon single. Rangers make a pitching change but it’s too late, the Giants have the lead and then some
    • SCORE: Giants 6, Rangers 2
  • Top 7th – Peralta pitching
    • Dubon at short makes a smooth play
    • 3 up, 3 down
  • Bottom 7th – Luke Farrell pitching

  • Top 9th
    • Selman in to close things out.
