The Rangers and White Sox wrapped up their four-game series on Sunday at Globe Life Field. With a win, Texas would clinch the series win and claim back-to-back victories for the third time since the start of July.

Spencer Howard would take the hill for the Rangers looking to bounce back from his last start where he allowed six runs in just four innings of work.

Howard got himself into some trouble in the first allowing back-to-back singles to Eloy Jimenez and Jose Abreu. However, he would get out of it after forcing out Andrew Vaughn.

Although, in the second inning he was not so lucky. Howard started the inning by walking Josh Harrison and giving up a single to Leury Garcia. With two outs in the inning, A.J Pollock lined a single into left to drive home Harrison and give Chicago a 1-0 lead.

The third inning would be more trouble for the Rangers’ young righty as White Sox first baseman Andrew Vaughn drove an 81 MPH cutter into the White Sox bullpen to give Chicago a 3-0 lead. 

The Rangers were finally able to make their way to the scoreboard in the bottom half of the third after Nathaniel Lowe blooped a single into right field which scored Marcus Semien and made the score 3-1. 

Texas, however, did fail to capitalize on two huge opportunities to score more runs in that same inning  With just one out in the inning, Adolis Garcia lined a ball to left field, and Corey Seager who was on third at the time failed to tag up costing the Rangers a run. 

The second of two missed opportunities came with two outs and the bases loaded. One of the hottest Rangers Meibrys Viloria came to the plate but would tap a ball into the shift failing to capitalize on the opportunity. 

In the fourth, an already bad start got worse for Spencer Howard. A two-RBI double from Luis Robert and an RBI single from Eloy Jimenez would expand the Chicago lead to a score of 6-1.

Nathaniel Lowe blasted a home run in the bottom of the seventh but all that did was set off the fireworks because the White Sox led by a score of 8-2. 

The Rangers never really got anything going on offense and well… The White Sox did. 

Spencer Howard really struggled today for the Rangers and things did not go well at Globe Life Field. 

The White Sox would take the series finale by a score of 8-2.
