Jeff Wilson says that Kohei Arihara is in the Rangers plans for 2022 even though this season has been pretty “meh” because of injury. Arihara got knocked around pretty good yesterday, though the Astros have done that to a lot of pitchers. Willie Calhoun is running out of time to prove he is part of the Rangers’ long term plans, and is winning to play winter ball to get back up to speed.

Stop me if you’ve heard this before, but Kohei Arihara got knocked around. Arihara, in his third outing since being activated from the injured list, looked a lot like the pitcher who got hammered in April and May of this year, before he landed on the i.l. Arihara was pulled in the top of the fifth, having given up a single, an HBP, and a double, retiring no one in the inning. The numbers for Arihara on the year are terrible, no matter how you look at them.

The Texas Rangers mustered a couple of runs whilst the Houston Astros scored seven runs. It wasn’t quite 15-1 but the Rangers never really looked like they were threatening to come away with a victory tonight at any point. The final Silver Boot series of the season has been a strange one with Texas being outscored 22-3 in the two losses, while outpacing Houston 8-1 in their win last night.

Hey Siri, this was a first start to remember after all of those years working to get to the majors. Jose Siri homered twice and added a two-run single while becoming the first big league player since RBIs became official in 1920 to have two homers and five RBIs in a first career start as the AL West-leading Houston Astros overwhelmed the last-place Texas Rangers 15-1 on Monday night. “I feel really happy, I feel really proud of myself to be able to accomplish that,” Siri, who finished 4 for 5 and scored three times, said through a translator.

Despite rushing for its most yards in half a decade, Arkansas didn’t have a single player crack the century mark Saturday night. Instead, five different players finished with between 44 and 75 yards in a balanced attack that led the Razorbacks to a dominant 40-21 win over No. 15 Texas. In addition to quarterback KJ Jefferson, who is also a threat with his legs, Arkansas rotated four running backs throughout the game and each of them had success running the ball.

Jonah Heim hit a two-run home run with two outs in the eighth to cap a five-run rally, lifting the Texas Rangers past the Oakland Athletics, 8-6, on Saturday. Trailing 6-2 after being held down by starter Cole Irvin, the Rangers took advantage of the A’s struggling bullpen. DJ Peters hit a two-run home run and Yohel Pozo added an RBI double off Sergio Romo before Heim’s homer on an 0-2 pitch from Andrew Chafin (1-3).

Deolis Guerra kept it simple out of the bullpen, but was masterful in his execution against the Rangers.

With four- and five-star talent up and down its roster, Texas is more talented than Arkansas at virtually every position on paper. Luckily for the Razorbacks, paper does not matter as soon as the ball is snapped. There are plenty of interesting positional matchups that will take place this weekend, but none more interesting than the speedy Razorback receivers versus the experienced Texas defensive backs.
