Last night, the Dallas Stars invaded Globe Life Field for their annual Dallas Stars Night at the Texas Rangers ballpark. There were tons of fans that attended the game last night that received a Blackout Nathaniel Lowe Jersey they were giving away if you bought a special ticket. We even got to see Jason Robertson throw out the first pitch of the game which was a tad high over the plate. Let’s take a look back at what was a special night at the ballpark last night as we celebrated a good hockey season last night.
Dallas Stars Night at the Texas Rangers: Pregame
The festivities kicked off as Jason Robertson was called out to the mound to throw out the first pitch. The fans really cheered loudly as Texas Rangers PR Announcer Chuck Morgan announced all the accolades and records that he accomplished during his career. He gave a wave while he was standing on the mound and threw the first pitch of the game. However, we soon realized he should stick to hockey as his pitch went a tad high and Nathaniel Lowe had to reach up to catch it.
Dallas Stars Night at the Texas Rangers: Moonshots
There were some home runs that happened during Dallas Stars night at the ballpark. The first home run was a moonshot courtesy of Nathaniel Lowe. Lowe is a first baseman that won the silver slugger award last season so Lowe hitting home runs should not come as a surprise for Rangers fans. When that ball went over the middle of the plate, I knew it was probably going to be a home run.
The second home run would come from a name that Rangers fans know all too well, Adolis “El Bombi” Garcia. The Cardinals relief pitcher threw a rising fastball to him over the plate and that was one crushed over the left field wall. I’m sure that the pitcher would like the pitch back.
Dallas Stars Night at the Texas Rangers: Conclusion
The Rangers had the lead going into the ninth inning and Texas Rangers manager Bruce Bochy put in his best relief pitcher Will Smith (not the actor) to close out the game. Smith had no issues retiring the final three batters of the game as the Rangers went on to win 6-4 over the Cardinals pitcher.
This Rangers squad this season is no joke at all. Bruce Bochy has completely unlocked the offense just like Pete DeBoer did for the Dallas Stars. I expect the Rangers to be in the postseason this year and hopefully, it’s a very deep run like the Stars had this season. If you want to catch a game and save some money, make sure to vote to send some Rangers to the All-Star Game in Seattle this season. I definitely can’t wait for next year’s Dallas Stars night at the Texas Rangers.
