Going for the series win. If we are on the whole sweeping or being swept thing, we have set the precedent early for the right direction.
Thomas Pannone gets his second start and his 11th appearance of the season. He has a 5.40 ERA. His first start didn’t go all that well, he only went 2.2 innings allowing 5 hits, 4 earned, 2 walks with 6 strikeouts. His last two appearances weren’t all that great, 5 earned over 4 innings. He’s been up and down this season.
Lance Lynn starts for the Rangers. He’s had 5 starts, and has a 5.45 ERA. He’s had 2 really bad starts and 4 really good starts. The two bad, he’s pitched 9 innings and allowed 15 runs. The 4 good? 25.2 innings and 6 earned runs.
