    ARLINGTON – The Rangers became the first club this season to score 11 runs in an inning, scoring 11 in the third inning while knocking out Astros spot starter Lucas Harrell. “It’s more frustrating than anything,” Harrell said. With nobody coming out of the dugout to get him, Harrell then looked back toward the bullpen in left-center field. Only five of the runs were earned, but Harrell and lefthanded reliever Wade LeBlanc were clearly overmatched. Infielder Jake Elmore, who was brought in to catch in the fourth inning after Corporan exited with concussion-like symptoms, pitched the eighth inning and retired the side on 11 pitches. “We knew once Elmore went behind the plate and any juncture when he was going to go to the mound now you put Castro behind the plate and you still have everybody in the ballgame.”
