Last night the Texas Rangers beat the Houston Astros in game two of three, 8-1. This time it was Mike Napoli with the big blast of the night. But, Conroe, Texas, native Andrew Cashner was the story of the night throwing eight innings of one run baseball, giving up three hits. The Rangers are back at .500 on the season and remain three games out of a wildcard spot in the American League. The good guys look for the sweep this afternoon. First pitch [on KPLT 1490am] is set for 12:10 pm.
There’s been lots of movement for the Houston Texans and Dallas Cowboys in the wake of the disaster caused by Hurricane Harvey. They canceled the final preseason game between the two that had moved to AT&T Stadium. Texans personnel desired to be home with family and have the opportunity to help the community before the start of the 2017 season. Fans who had purchased tickets to the game have the choice of a refund, but the decision to not refund their ticket will have their money donated to disaster relief. Tickets went for $25 each with more than 40,000 sold.
And the college football season officially opens tonight. This evening No. 2 Ohio State plays Indiana while 10th ranked Oklahoma State is up against Tulsa.
