Lance Lynn was ruthless tonight. Although the Rangers often stumble on the defensive behind him, Lynn had nine innings of work on 109 shots for an all-game win while allowing just one earned run.
Frankly it should have been zero, but there was rarely a ball a Rangers fielder could handle without hitting it like a seal dressed as a clown in a circus behind Lynn tonight.
Nonetheless, Lynn is one of the few difference factors the Rangers have and that proved to be true tonight as Lynn took her record to 3-0 on the year and dropped her ERA to 1.11.
The last line: 9 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 6 Ks. Magistrale.
Game player: The moon on Lynn’s planet tonight was Nick Solak who made two tough plays in centerfield and was by far the most impressive Ranger on the flat with a 3-for-4 night that included two doubles and a home run alone.
following: The Rangers will send Kyle Gibson to the mound on Saturday night where he will face RHP German Marquez for the Rockies. Coors Field’s first pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. PST.
