Andrew Heaney sparkles as Rangers blank Marlins

Marlins

Andrew Heaney struck out seven across six scoreless innings to lead the Texas Rangers to a 6-0 victory over the host Miami Marlins on Sunday afternoon in the rubber match of a three-game series.

Heaney (2-6) yielded just four hits and didn’t issue a walk as Texas blanked Miami for the second time in as many days.

Jacob Latz worked around a pair of singles in the seventh and David Robertson struck out Dane Myers before inducing a double play to end the eighth. Grant Anderson then fanned two in a 1-2-3 ninth.

Adolis Garcia went 2-for-5 with a homer and two RBIs for the Rangers, who won for the fifth time in their past six games. Josh Smith also finished with two hits.

All seven of the Marlins’ hits were singles.

The Rangers wasted little time jumping on Marlins starter Trevor Rogers, striking for three runs in the first.

Robbie Grossman and Garcia headlined the early rally with back-to-back RBI singles, and Jonah Heim made it 3-0 by grounding into a double play that brought home Grossman.

Garcia then ripped a solo shot in the top of the sixth to push the Texas lead to 4-0. It was Garcia’s 13th homer of the season.

Aside from the Garcia blast, Rogers (1-7) was strong following the rocky first, giving up four runs and six hits in six innings. He walked two and fanned three.

Miami went 0-for-4 with runners in scoring position and left five on base. It had men on first and second against Latz in the seventh following singles by Jesus Sanchez and Emmanuel Rivera, but Otto Lopez struck out and Tim Anderson grounded out to end the inning.

With the victory virtually already in hand, Texas tacked on a pair of runs in the ninth thanks to Leody Taveras’ RBI single and Travis Jankowski’s run-scoring groundout.
