On Tuesday, the Texas Rangers played the Tampa Bay Rays at Globe Life Field in the final game of May, capping off a 17-10 month of May, their winningest month since 2019.
The Rangers defeated Tampa 3-0 in that game. With the win, the Rangers improved to 24-24 and got to .500 for the first time this season. The win also improved the Rangers’ odds at securing one of the three wild card spots in the AL, as they got within two games. Now, they enter the month of June in as good of a position as they’ve been in some time.
Texas, which started this season absolutely slow, is now starting to turn the corner as they are playing good baseball. Many people predicted the Rangers to finish near the bottom of baseball once again this season, albeit improved, and the sluggish start only reaffirmed those suspicions. Now, though? They’re flirting with a playoff spot! But can they sustain this current streak of success?
