Rangers rock Mikolas, send Cardinals reeling (still) in 7-2 loss

ARLINGTON, TEXAS — With one eye on creatively using the bullpen to get a pitcher deeper into Friday’s game, the Texas Rangers removed their starter by the second inning because everything was going according to plan

The Cardinals’ pothole-strewn road to .500 stretched on Friday as the Rangers blistered Miles Mikolas for seven runs in the second inning and swaggered off to a 7-3 interleague victory at Globe Life Park. The Rangers hit two home runs and sent 13 batters to the plate in the second inning to quickly send the Cardinals toward their 12th loss in their past 15 games.
