Mark Lowe gave up three runs on two hits in one inning for Double-A Frisco in the second game of his rehab assignment on Monday, striking out two and walking one while throwing 11 of 18 pitches for strikes. He will next pitch two innings with Frisco on Thursday. "I made a lot of good pitches last night," he said. "My last two hitters I felt right where I was before I got hurt. I repeated my delivery and threw all my pitches. I was throwing strikes, had some swings and misses, everything went good."
Nelson Cruz hit a 453-foot home run over Greene's Hill above the center-field wall off the Angels' Jerome Williams on Monday. It was his fourth homer in eight games and his 15th of the year, giving the Rangers four players with 15 home runs this season.
Five pitchers allowed at least three runs in the Rangers' 15-8 loss to the Angels on Monday, tied for the most in a Major League game this season. It's happened six times this year, including the Rangers' 21-8 loss to the Mariners on May 30.
