Here are the candidates for the Texas Rangers’ star of the game, as selected by Star-Telegram beat man Jeff Wilson, from a 4-2 loss Tuesday to the San Francisco Giants at Oracle Park.
David Dahl: Adolis Garcia had the day off, other than a pinch-hitting appearance in the ninth, but Dahl filled the power void with a home run to start the seventh inning and played capably in his first game of the season in center field. He also collected a single and stole his first base of the season.
Jordan Lyles: The right-hander wasn’t very good in a pitch-heavy first inning, when the Giants scored twice on two walks and two hits. Lyles didn’t allow a hit over the next four innings, but he walked three. But two runs in five innings isn’t bad.
Nate Lowe: The first baseman has reached in 24 straight games, the longest streak in the majors, after drawing a walk and collecting another opposite-field double. He’s batting .289 this season.
