Rangers Starting to Click with Tigers Up Next

After a tough May, the Texas Rangers are starting to find their groove in June. They’re all set to host the Detroit Tigers in a three-game series in Arlington, Texas, kicking off on Monday. Both teams are eager to build on recent performances and gain some momentum.

Recent Performances: Rangers’ Rebound and Tigers’ Resilience

The Texas Rangers are off to a solid start in June with back-to-back wins, including two shutouts—their first consecutive shutouts since 2016. They had a rough May, finishing with an 11-16 record, but things are looking up.

Key Highlights:

  • Adolis Garcia: Garcia bounced back after a difficult May, hitting a home run and an RBI single in Sunday’s 6-0 win over the Miami Marlins. It was his first multi-hit game since May 15.
  • Corey Seager: Seager has been a consistent powerhouse, extending his hitting streak to 15 games and reaching base in 25 straight games.

The Detroit Tigers, on the other hand, managed to split their four-game series against the Boston Red Sox, finishing with an 8-4 victory in extra innings on Sunday. Despite some ups and downs, the Tigers are staying competitive and hope to keep up the momentum.

Key Highlights:

  • Mark Canha: Back from left hip soreness, Canha contributed with an RBI, a run, and a stolen base in their latest win.
  • Spencer Torkelson: Torkelson is struggling with a .201 batting average and four home runs. His recent slump could lead to a demotion, possibly paving the way for Justyn-Henry Malloy from Triple-A Toledo.

Pitching Matchups: Eovaldi vs. Skubal

Nathan Eovaldi (Rangers):

  • Season Stats: Eovaldi, holding a 2-2 record with a 2.84 ERA, will start for Texas. After a groin injury, he returned to allow two runs over three innings against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Eovaldi has a solid track record against the Tigers, with a 4-0 record and a 3.24 ERA in six career starts.

Tarik Skubal (Tigers):

  • Season Stats: Skubal boasts a stellar 7-1 record with a 2.01 ERA. In his last start, he struck out eight over seven scoreless innings in an 8-0 win against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Against the Rangers, Skubal has a 1-1 record with a 4.15 ERA.

Managerial Insights

Bruce Bochy (Rangers):

  • Confidence in Team: Bochy believes in his team’s potential, saying, “If we play our game and pitch like we’re capable of pitching, we can play with anybody.”

Derek Shelton (Pirates, on Skubal):

  • Praise for Skubal: Shelton commended Skubal’s recent performance, highlighting his command and efficiency.

Strategic Outlook

Rangers’ Strategy:

  • Building Momentum: The Rangers aim to keep their strong start in June going, with key players like Garcia and Seager stepping up. Eovaldi’s return also bolsters their pitching rotation.

Tigers’ Strategy:

  • Addressing Inconsistencies: The Tigers need to get more consistent offensively. Bringing up Malloy could provide a much-needed boost, especially with Torkelson’s struggles.


This series between the Rangers and Tigers gives both teams a shot to build on their recent performances. The Rangers want to maintain their momentum, while the Tigers look to address their offensive issues. The key player performances and the pitching battle between Eovaldi and Skubal will be crucial in determining the series’ outcome.
