Chiri­nos helps Rangers past Braves 2-1

The Covington News - - THE WIRE -

AR­LING­TON, Texas (AP) — Robin­son Chiri­nos is back. So is Derek Hol­land. The catcher and pitcher led Texas to the win on Fri­day night.

Chiri­nos hit a tiebreak­ing RBI sin­gle in the eighth in­ning, send­ing the Rangers to a 2-1 vic­tory over the At­lanta Braves.

“(Team­mates) were putting (to­gether) good at-bats,” Chiri­nos said. “So I was just try­ing to get a good pitch and try­ing to do my job and hit a line drive some­where. It was good to be back in the game.”

Chiri­nos was play­ing for the first time after miss­ing 10 games be­cause of a stiff neck.
