Tim Fletcher: Rangers Make History (But Not The Good Kind)
The Rangers made history last night at home against New York, but not in a good way.
After falling behind Texas 5-0, the Yankees rallied with 21 unanswered runs to win 21.-5, becoming the first team in Major League Baseball history to allow the first five or more runs of a game and then score 21 or more unanswered runs, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
Texas scored their five runs in the bottom of the first and watched New York roll 11 runs on the board in the next half-inning. With the score 5-1 and the bases loaded with nobody out, Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor broke the wrong way on a ground ball that should have been a double play. Instead, it was a two-run double and the floodgate was opened.
