Rangers 9, Phillies 3
Game 37 - Wednesday Night, May 17th in Arlington
Record - 14-23, 4th place, 10 games behind the Nationals
One Sentence Summary: Zach Eflin was chased early as the Phillies dropped a forgettable game to the Rangers, 9-3.
What It Means: The Phils will try to avoid the series sweep in this afternoon's matinee with the Rangers, before heading to Pittsburgh for a weekend series.
What Happened: Eflin departed after four innings having allowed seven runs on 11 hits. Michael Saunders hit a two-run home run (4) in the seventh inning to spoil the Rangers' shut-out.
Featured Card: Phillies Room favorite Cole Hamels is on the disabled list with an oblique injury, so we won't get to see him in this series. Hamels is under contract with the Rangers through the 2018 season, and in a recent interview he didn't rule out possibly returning to the Phillies one day.
