Rangers Vs. Astros Final Score: Texas Has 5-Run Inning, Defeat Houston 6-2

The Texas Rangers used a five-run fifth inning and a solid performance by Yu Darvish to defeat the Houston Astros 6-2. Darvish pitched eight solid innings for the Rangers and held the Astros to seven hits, two runs, two walks and struck out 11 batters.

The five-run fifth inning all came against Astros starting pitcher Jordan Lyles. The Rangers used small ball to score the five runs by hitting five straight singles and they used a couple of errors to score their five runs.

The Astros offense was unable to respond to the Rangers big inning, and they only managed to hit a home run by Justin Maxwell in the seventh inning to make it a 5-2 game.

The Rangers put the game away for good when Mitch Moreland provided an insurance run in the eighth inning when he hit his 10th home run of the season.
