Rangers-Astros Gear Up for the Weekend

Posted on 4/11/2014 by with 0 comments

Though Texas won’t have its star slugger this weekend, Yu Darvish gives the Rangers a good shot to continue their dominance of the Houston Astros.

Ex-Ranger Scott Feldman, however, has pitched well enough for the Astros to have a legitimate chance at ending those struggles in his return to Arlington.

Minus the injured Adrian Beltre, Darvish and the Rangers look for a 12th consecutive victory over the visiting Astros on Friday night.

Texas (4-5) has had little trouble with its in-state rival in recent years, winning 36 of the last 43 meetings. The Rangers went 17-2 against Houston last season — the Astros’ first in the AL. Houston (4-6) beat Texas 8-2 to open the season, then Darvish came within an out of tossing a perfect game two nights later in a 7-0 victory.
