Rangers Continue Winning Streak with 9-4 Victory Over Angels

Corey Seager extended his hitting streak to 13 games with a powerful two-run homer, while Nathaniel Lowe contributed three hits as the Texas Rangers' lineup remained hot in a 9-4 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Monday night.

Key Highlights:

  • The Texas Rangers secured a 9-4 victory against the Los Angeles Angels, pushing their winning streak to four games.
  • Texas trailed 3-2 before a five-run fourth inning, highlighted by an RBI single from Lowe that gave the Rangers the lead.
  • Seager hit a 457-foot home run, his second-longest career shot, extending his hitting streak to 13 games.
  • Wyatt Langford added to the lead with a two-run homer in the seventh inning.

The defending World Series champions showcased their offensive power with 12 hits. This comes after they tied a season high with 19 hits in a 13-2 victory over Tampa Bay on Sunday.

“I think it's a matter of time with this offense,” Lowe said. “We're poised to make some things happen, so nobody in here is going to be surprised if we bust out a bunch of wins in a row or score a lot of runs. That’s kind of been our identity. We’ve gotten away from it.”

Texas found themselves behind 3-2 before exploding for five runs in the fourth inning, capped by Lowe's crucial RBI single. Anthony Rendon, returning from a 68-game absence due to a left hamstring strain, added an RBI single in the seventh for the Angels, who have now dropped seven of their last eight games.

Rangers’ right-hander Jon Gray (4-4) pitched five-plus innings, allowing three runs to earn his first road win of the season. Marcus Semien started the game strong for Texas with a leadoff base hit, and Seager followed with his towering home run, marking the first time since 2021 that an opposing hitter recorded a homer of at least 455 feet at The Big A.

“Corey is such a good hitter you kind of get accustomed to him hitting balls like that,” Rangers manager Bruce Bochy said.

The Angels took an early lead in the second inning with four consecutive hits, including a two-run triple by Mickey Moniak and an RBI single from Jo Adell. However, Texas regained control in the fourth inning with key hits and a balk that scored Langford.

Angels starter Davis Daniel struggled, allowing seven runs on eight hits in 3 2/3 innings. His recent outings have not mirrored his strong debut against Detroit on June 27.

“He got two strikes and couldn't put them away. He left his changeup up, couldn't land his breaking ball, made a few good pitches with his fastball inside. But when he got it out over the plate, they've got some professional hitters over there,” Angels manager Ron Washington said.

Langford’s two-run homer in the seventh sealed the victory for Texas, capping off a dominant offensive performance.
