Chirinos helps Rangers past Braves 2-1
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.
