Choo’s homer leads Rangers past Mariners 4-3
Question of the Day
He gave up three runs in the first inning and a tiebreaking home run to Shin-Soo Choo in the fifth in a 4-3 loss to the Texas Rangers on Wednesday.
Young (3-2) gave up seven hits and three walks in 6 1-3 innings.
He previously pitched in Arlington in 2006 for the San Diego Padres.
“You have those games where if you can limit the damage early, you feel like you’ll pitch a good game. I gave up one too many in the first.”
Texas’ first five batters reached base, with Elvis Andrus hitting a two-run homer and Alex Rios singling home the third run.
Center fielder Michael Choice ran back to attempt a catch, but his glove hit the wall as the ball barely cleared it.
Choo led off the fifth with his homer into the bullpen in left-center.
“He gave us quality innings after the first inning, really got us in a position to use the bullpen guys we needed to, and not stretch anybody.”
“I thought it was a decent pitch. Some places it’s not (out), “If it was a better pitch, maybe he doesn’t hit it out.”
