This is the same lineup that Texas used in Tuesday’s 4-0 victory. The Rangers got seven shutout innings from southpaw Jordan Montgomery, and the bullpen closed it down. At the plate, Seager, Taveras and Carter led the way with two hits apiece. Both of Carter’s hits were doubles, and Seager added an RBI single in the sixth inning. Jung hit a sacrifice fly to begin the scoring in the top of the second. Seager’s heads-up base running notched a run on a wild pitch from Tyler Glasnow in the top of the fifth.
