Miami (USA), Apr 16. The latest installment of the ‘Lone Star Series’ fell on the side of the Texas Rangers this Sunday by beating the Houston Astros by a resounding 1-9 which was cooked mainly in a seventh inning devastating with six points, including a ‘grand slam’ led by Marcus Semien.


The duel between the Astros and Rangers was a huge tie and defenses dominated until it was the Rangers’ turn at bat in the seventh inning.

They went up to the light deuce quickly, which was followed by a “grand slam” with Marcus Siemen at bat. The 0-6 fell like a stone on the locals, who could only add a point in the remaining time, insufficient to have options to return to the Texas duel.

The disconnect from the locals caused Astros fans to start leaving the stands at Minute Maid Park in the eighth ‘inning’ in the face of the obvious dominance of their biggest rival.


The Yankees managed to even the four-game series with victory on Sunday, leaving the Twins goalless in a good game from Gerrit Cole. The pitcher hit 10 times for the fourth time he has scored a shutout in his career.

Cole threw 109 pitches, getting the last nine outs in 25 minutes. The offense was led by California DJ LeMahieu, who hit a home run and also drove in another run scored by Aaron Judge.


The Rays avoided a three-game sweep by defeating the Toronto Blue Jays. Panamanian Christian Bethancourt hit a three-run homer in the fifth inning that all but sealed the game.

The Rays have homered at least one in each of their 16 games this season. They are close to the record set by Seattle in 2019, which reached 20 games.


A single run batted in by Brian Anderson in the second inning was enough for the Milwaukee Brewers to beat the San Diego Padres on the road.

Both teams averaged 13 points combined Friday and Saturday night, but the defense prevailed in the series finale.

San Diego ruined the dominance of Japan’s Yu Darvish, who struck out 12 in seven innings.


The game between the Metros and the Athletics went to the tenth inning to be decided and the New Yorkers earned a 3-0 sweep against Oakland over the weekend.

Pete Alonso tied the game in the ninth with his eighth home run of the season. Venezuelan Eduardo Escobar was the architect of the final race with Sam Moll on the mound.

Puerto Rican Francisco Lindor also hit a sixth-inning home run that gave the Mets the lead at the time. The A’s came close to winning by adding their second and third runs in the eighth inning.


The Seattle Mariners, in their win over the Colorado Rockies, had Dominican Luis Castillo as the key man on the mound.

He pitched seven shutout innings, allowing just two hits and striking out nine.
