Pregame Notes: Rangers Open Series at Mets

The Texas Rangers stay on the road to face the National League East-leading New York Mets on Friday night.

The Texas Rangers stay on the road to face the National League East-leading New York Mets in a three-game weekend series starting Friday night from Citi Field. After an off day on Thursday, this is the fourth game of a nine-game road trip for Texas. Fun fact, this is the first series between the two teams since 2017.

In the standings, Texas is second place in the American League West and four games out of the third Wild Card position in the AL. Texas looks to put string together some wins to finally get over that .500 hump. Here’s everything you need to know.
