Texas Rangers catcher Robinson Chirinos came out of Tuesday night’s game with a bruised right hand after being hit by a pitch.
Phil Klein allowed one run in his first major league start, Shawn Tolleson succeeded in his first career save opportunity and the Rangers beat the Boston Red Sox 2-1 on Wednesday night.
Robinson Chirinos drove in a career-high five RBIs on Tuesday night, but was easily more pleased that he was a big part of helping Texas starter Nick Martinez to a win.
Nick Martinez pitched more than 6 scoreless innings and Robinson Chirinos homered to lead the Rangers to a 2-1 victory over the Astros on Tuesday night in Arlington.
Donnie Murphy homered twice, Colby Lewis won for the first time in more than three weeks, and the Rangers beat the Athletics by a score of 14-8 on Monday night.
Ron Washington would like someone to step up and seize the everyday catcher role — it just hasn’t happened.
The Rangers acquired catcher Robinson Chirinos from the Rays for a player to be named or cash. The deal was announced Monday, before the teams opened a series in Texas.
