Hitting will come at some point.”</p> <p id="b7vFDr">“We had our chances,” manager Davey Martinez told reporters in his post game press conference in the Rangers’ home. </p> <p id="knZGip">“We had our chances early, we had our chances late, we’re just struggling driving in some runs now, so, and we clearly got one taken away from us.”</p> <p id="g8iElf">The one he felt was taken away from the Nationals was on a Nelson Cruz liner in the eighth, an at-bat after Josh Bell singled to start the inning. Rangers’ third baseman Josh H. Smith dove for the ball, and it appeared to glance off his glove while in fair territory before landing foul, so, the Nats argued, it should have been a fair ball. </p> <p id="wfmHLC">“It becomes a judgement call,” Martinez said of what he was told when he asked the umps to discuss it and see if anyone saw what he and his DH did. </p> <p id="hmK5qe">“So you can’t review it, and I just saw it again, and I hope they look at it tonight, that’s all I’m going to say.”</p> <p id="3TmZOG">“It was obvious,” Cruz said. “I saw it right away. He hit it and he was in fair territory. Like you said, it was judgement call. Probably it was tough for him to see the baseball and see where the defender was in that situation. I guess he needed help from the other guys, but yeah, that hurt us, yeah.”</p> <p id="q2f5qh">“You have to treat it like it was a foul ball,” he said when asked how he moved on from it, and tried to stay in the at-bat, which ended with a double play.</p> <p id="9EiF5x">“At the end of the day, that’s what it was.”</p> <p id="WnN24P">“Just a tough day for our offense, so we got to come back tomorrow,” Martinez said.

So, that’s how I decided to bump César [Hernández] back to seventh just because I wanted to get Lane [Thomas] up there against Matt Bush, because Lane does hit fastballs well.</p> <figure class="e-image"> <img alt="MLB: Washington Nationals at Texas Rangers" data-mask-text="false" src="https://cdn.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/vbi_gUYSH1QeOmzqMHJ6trObRQg=/400x0/filters:no_upscale()/cdn.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_asset/file/23652076/usa_today_18595403.jpg"> <cite>Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports</cite> </figure> <p id="trKuve">“So, maybe he can get a jumpstart for us, then you have all those switch hitters in a row, so we’ll see what happens. It’s always difficult to plan a day when you don’t know that a guy is going to pitch 5-6 innings.”</p> <p id="Dz16P2">Of course, Bush didn’t end up opening up the second of three in Globe Life Field. </p> <p id="VjhBc7">Lefty Brett Martin did, then 2015 Nats’ 5th Round pick Taylor Hearn tossed four scoreless out of the pen, giving up just two one-out walks in the top of the second. </p> <p id="GBPE1p">As a poet once wrote, “The best laid schemes o’ mice an’ men gang aft agley, an’ lea’e us nought but grief an’ pain.”</p> <h3 id="O9e97C"> <strong>Does He Get Mad?:</strong> </h3> <p id="pDw1Hq">Towards the end of Davey Martinez’s pregame press conference on Saturday, a reporter asked the fifth-year skipper what they said was an admittedly silly question: </p> <p id="mtEKbl">Does right-hander Paolo Espino, who’s seemingly imperturbable, ever, you know, get angry? </p> <p id="P6hhpC">We’re paraphrasing the question, but Davey liked it.</p> <p id="7Bqmzi"><strong> </strong>“Good question,” Martinez said. “Not necessarily, but he does get frustrated. Yesterday, he was frustrated after he threw that pitch and [Rangers’ outfielder Adolis] García hit a home run, because he said, ‘I wasn’t convicted to throw that pitch and I threw it anyway, which is dumb.’ So I said, ‘Hey, just learn.

He’s playing well. </p> <p id="59N2JU">“We always talk about how well he’s hitting, but he’s even playing — he’s playing good defense for us, which is awesome. So, love him. He goes out there every day, you know what you’re going to get from him. He’s a professional. </p> <p id="n3zfKB">“Right now he’s having some big hits for us.”</p> <p id="2xImA9">Bell started the night 21 for 73 (.288/.386/.630) with two doubles, a triple, seven home runs, 12 walks, and 18 Ks in 88 plate appearances in June, with seven of his 11 HRs overall in 2022 hit in the last few weeks. </p> <p id="luQAzc">Soto began the series in a slump, going 2 for 26 in the previous eight games (.077/.273/.192) with a home run, seven walks, and four Ks in 33 PAs over that stretch, but that rally-starting, two-base hit to left-center was another good sign according to his manager.</p> <p id="sHW1qz">Now if he can just do it consistently.</p> <p id="pWHyS2">“Yes, he can do that,” Martinez said. </p> <p id="aWbhnO">“We’ve seen him do it, and I really believe that he will do it. But for me it’s just, hey, for me he’s trying really hard, he really is. You can see with guys on base, we got to get him to relax and just like I said, use the whole field. </p> <p id="iZLaMk">“When he hits the ball up the middle of the field like that, he’s good. And that was 97 [MPH]. </p> <p id="KvSLjc">“So he stayed on it and drove the ball to left-center field, which was beautiful.

Two is, I don’t know if you guys remember all of the locusts that were on the field at the time, so fielding a ball out there was sometimes tricky because all the bugs, the ball would come out and hit all the bugs and you had to pick it up. But I had a great time here. I played for Johnny Oates, who is one of my favorite guys, so when I come back here, the first memory was about Johnny and what a good person he was.”</p> <p id="d5SCqs">Martinez said his club took some time before the game to check out the field, the outfield walls, and warning track, so they could get ready for their first game in the Rangers’ home.</p> <p id="3O7ns6">“They’re all going to go out there and take fly balls and check out the warning track and the angles of the fences,” Martinez said, “so they’ll get their work in and then the thing is about taking BP the first time is seeing the backdrop, and let these guys get their swings and see how the ball travels and get ready for the game.”</p> <h3 id="fIRJ5h"><strong>Corbin’s Game:</strong></h3> <p id="JspuGL">Before he gave up seven hits, a walk, and three earned runs in four innings of work against the <a href="https://www.camdenchat.com/">Baltimore Orioles</a> in OPACY, in which he threw 83 pitches, 30 of which were fouled off, Nationals’ GM <a href="https://omny.fm/shows/the-sports-junkies/mike-rizzo-6">Mike Rizzo talked to 106.7 the FAN in D.C.’s Sports Junkies</a> about what he has seen from the 32-year-old lefty, who’s been trying to get back to his 2018-19 form for three years now.</p> <p id="hlpCkx">“His stuff is solid — he still has velocity, spin rate, and all that stuff — but he’s gotta get out his own way sometimes,” Rizzo told the Junkies. </p> <p id="clMiMa">“Defense hasn’t helped him recently.

His last outing, he gave up three runs, we didn’t hit, you can look at it that way, you know, we got to score some runs for him as well. But right now I like what he’s doing. The biggest thing in his last outing was finishing hitters, he had a lot of foul balls, so we did talk to him about that a little bit, but I don’t want him to shy away from the strike zone. And that’s what happened to him before. </p> <p id="o096Np">“He’s throwing strikes, and he’s pounding the strike zone, so I want him to continue to do that, and it’s just a matter of time before things start going his way, and like I said, we score a few runs here and there for him, and you’ll see him pitch six innings, 2-3 runs, and start winning ballgames. </p> <p id="qUd7UM">“But I like — I sat with him and talked to him about how well I thought he pitched, and just continue to do that and things will turn around for him.”</p> <h3 id="UEQQ69"><strong>Paolo Espino - Starting Pitcher:</strong></h3> <p id="P2qrTY">Paolo Espino started last night’s game with a 2.29 ERA, a 3.39 FIP, eight walks, 27 Ks, and a .227/.271/.333 line against in 22 games, two starts, and 35 <sup>1</sup>⁄<sub>3</sub> innings, and though he ended up in the rotation because of injuries to other starters, he earned his spot in the starting mix, according to his manager, who said before Espino took on the Rangers the veteran knows his role, and excels wherever he is pitching.</p> <figure class="e-image"> <img alt="Washington Nationals v Texas Rangers" data-mask-text="false" src="https://cdn.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/Agiz-5OERKpZ5ZlkJDGZWa0shrY=/400x0/filters:no_upscale()/cdn.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_asset/file/23651001/1241511144.jpg"> <cite>Photo by Ron Jenkins/Getty Images</cite> </figure> <p id="oalB0d">“He understands that he’s here to help the team in any way possible,” Martinez explained. </p> <p id="y8lhuK">“In Spring Training we talked to him about his role changing, you know, midseason.
