The Rangers’ lineup featured two familiar faces Tuesday against the Arizona Diamondbacks: starting pitchers Nathan Eovaldi and Wyatt Langford.

The game began with a 1-2-3 top of the first as Eovaldi had no trouble setting down the Dbacks.  The Rangers also went down 1-2-3 in the bottom of the inning. 

The Diamondbacks struck first in the second inning, scoring RBIs from Jake McCarthy and Eugenio Suarez, making it 2-0.

Eovaldi did not return for the 4th inning as Andrew Heaney took the mound. The Rangers scored their first run in the 3rd on a Josh Smith RBI single, and it was 2-1

Heaney cruised through the 3rd, 4th, and 5th. Corey Seager hit a 3-run-bomb to give the Rangers a 4-2 lead. 

The Diamondbacks loaded the bases with one out in the 6th, and Eugenio Suarez flew out to Adolis Garcia, who threw out Joc Pederson at the plate for an inning-ending double play. 

Grant Anderson, David Robertson, and Kirby Yates shut down the Diamondbacks to secure the Rangers 4-2 victory. 

“What a terrific job, Anderson; I mean, he comes in bases loaded.” Bruce Bochy said to the media after the win.

“Of course, Adolis, I mean, that’s a game-changing play. You just don’t see that many plays made that deep.”

Eovaldi told the media after the game he found out two days ago he would be starting against the Diamondbacks instead of having a rehab assignment in Round Rock.

He felt 100%, so the Rangers decided to start him. 

This is the first time since May 6-7 that the Rangers have won back-to-back games. 

The two teams face off again tomorrow afternoon against Arizona and go for the series and homestand sweep.
