Arlington, TX is the word for Texas Rangers summer camp life was the field of the ball will help the pitchers. However, Colorado played as a Course field at night on a Tuesday.
Rocky mountain spoiled the first exhibition match in the history of the world the life of the field, beating the Rangers 5-1. Colorado Daniel Murphy, Nolan Arenado, and David Dahl each hit home runs in the empty space of the globe life field off Rangers starter Kyle Gibson.
“It was nice to see our guys compete against the other team,” Rangers Manager Chris Woodward said. “We wanted to win, not to lose, but all in all we came out healthy. Gibson came out healthy. I thought it was normal. He made a couple of mistakes and they have pretty good top of the range. They made him pay.”
In its final configuration before the start of the next season, Gibson threw 84 pitches (55 strikes) in five innings, allowing six strikes, five runs, one walk, and struck out four batters. Gibson usually control the ball very well, but left too many fields in the area.
“I think the ball was a little bit,” said Gibson. “In some situations with home runs, I probably left a wrong step at that time, probably, those whom they sought. They took some really good swings on the grounds, which are actually located very well.”
Robinson Chirinos caught Kyle Gibson, what they don’t do very often together. According to Gibson, today’s outing was more about working with Chirinos and hitting his spots in the strike zone.
“Every now and then, you are just working on some things. That’s what Robbie and I were trying to do,” said Gibson. “I understand that it’s a friendly match and the last setting. This is the first time when Robbie caught me from spring training. We are working on a few things. I had a plan that I wanted to work and was able to do so that was good.”
Gibson had focused on the location of his four-seam and two-seam fastballs down and away to right-handed players. On the other hand, he was very dissatisfied with his slider, which is usually a pretty reliable pitch.
At the plate, the Rangers left 10 runners on base and failed to collect any offense throughout the night, despite the fact, to make runners on base. They looked like they were preparing a two-out rally in the bottom of the fourth inning, when Todd Frazier singled and Chirinos and as Nick Solak walked to load the bases for Nisag Kiner-Falefa. Action was devastated when the Rangers ‘ hottest hitter in camp justified pitcher Chi Chi Gonzalez on the first pitch.
“I wish it were a little more patient,” said Woodward. “One thing about Kiner, he’s good on anything you throw in there. Therefore, it needs to be a little more selective. When he gets to the barrel on the ball right now, while she is pretty hot. …It needs to control these passionate emotions”.
The Rangers came to the lone Leody Taveras RBI single in the bottom of the seventh inning. Taveras was strong in the spring and dragged to the camp over the past few weeks. The registry solutions, ultimately going down to the wire, but Taveras continues to impress and make a hard push for the opening Day spot in the lineup.
“It’s hard to find any flaws in his game right now. He was very impressive,” said Woodward. “The fact that he’s still here says a lot. He’s still very, very much in the mix. There’s a lot of competition for those places, but the kid played his ass, honestly. In every single way. Defensively, offensively, on the bases that pretty much affects every game he played.”
