The Texas Rangers (74-74) defeated the Tampa Bay Rays (87-61) on Thursday at Globe Life Park in Arlington.
UTA students, alumni and parents attended the Thursday matchup, as it marked UTA Night as part of the organization’s annual University Days. The first 1,000 members of the UTA community received a UTA-themed Rangers cap.
The game started as a back-and-forth affair, with both teams tied at 1-1 through two innings.
Texas began to pull away in the fourth inning after a single, a wild pitch and a two-run home run gave the Rangers a 5-1 lead.
