Choo Shin-soo of the Texas Rangers continued his three-game hitting streak, but the Texas Rangers again failed to escape a losing streak.
In an away game against the Houston Astros at Minute Meade Park in Houston, Texas, Choo started as the designated hitter in the 2019 Major League Baseball (MLB) and recorded one hit in four at-bats. Choo's batting average, which continued to hit three consecutive games, remained at .284.
Choo, who had his first at-bat bunt out in the top of the first inning, made it to base in his second at-bat. Texas hit a heavy hit off Rosario Armenteros in the top of the third inning, with one out and one out, but Choo failed to score.
Choo has since been regretful. Choo, who entered his third at bat in the top of the fifth inning with two outs, struck out swinging in a showdown against the Armenteros. He then struck out swinging in his fourth at-bat against Will Harris in the top of the eighth. Choo has not been given any more at-bats since then.
Meanwhile, Texas lost 3-5. Texas, which ranks fourth in the American League West, has lost seven straight games. With his batting average remaining silent, starting pitcher Lance Lynn lost seven innings, seven hits (two homers), two walks, 12 strikeouts, four runs (four earned runs) and four runs. In the top of the ninth inning, Logan Forsyth (one hit at bat, one RBI and one run scored) hit a solo homer, but he failed to turn the tide.
