Rangers open with Astros

Nomar Mazara right fielder for the Texas Rangers

In the first inning, third baseman Alex Bregman moved to left field, opening up the entire left side of the infield for the pull-happy Gallo.

After riding a dominating six-inning, pitching performance from Verlander and home runs by George Springer and Jake Marisnick in Thursday's 4-1 Opening Day win over Texas, the Astros hand the ball to Keuchel on Friday at Globe Life Park in search of a win against their Lone Star State rivals in the teams' season-opening four-game series.

They're joined by newcomers Doug Fister, Matt Moore and Mike Minor.

The Rangers understand that nobody expects them to win the American League West or even earn an AL wild-card spot.

"A relentless style of baseball that puts pressure on the other team", Banister said. Rangers Hall of Fame broadcaster Eric Nadel's call of the game is available, as always, from MLB's At Bat app, as long as you're willing to fork over $4 a month for a subscription.

At the plate, the young lineup for Texas will get a chance to face a stacked pitching staff headlined by Justin Verlander.

Suspect in Hopkinsville officer's death killed by Police
He was a sheriff's deputy for 12-13 years before joining the Hopkinsville force. During the ensuing foot chase, authorities say two suspects fired shots.

Game two of 162 begins tonight, when the Astros send Dallas Keuchel to the hill.

The Houston Astros beat the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 2017 World Series in Game 7 of what proved to be an exciting glimpse of the future of the game. Lefty Cole Hamels and the Rangers are both still trying to get back to the World Series.

ORIOLES 3, TWINS 2: Adam Jones homered on Fernando Rodney's first pitch starting the bottom of the 11th inning, and Baltimore won at home for its eighth consecutive win on Opening Day. "I'm excited to be here for a whole season". Hamels (0-1) was lifted after 5 2/3 innings in which he allowed three runs on five hits with four walks and seven strikeouts.

Houston is 9-1 in Verlander's last 10 starts and 9-1 in their last 10 division matchups while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 road games.

The Rangers aren't going to be great, but they could be good enough. "I used the routine from the past couple years to get to this point, and it's become kind of second nature to me now". "So what we have at stake is some really fun, competitive baseball, and that's something to look forward to for the whole season".
