Rangers 4, Rockies 2
ARLINGTON — As the Rockies try all kinds of experiments to extract more innings out of their starting pitchers, right-hander Alex White is pitching fewer.
White struggled to find the strike zone and gave up four runs in a season-low 2 2/3 innings of a 4-2 loss to the Rangers on Sunday night in front of a sellout crowd of 45,407.
The loss left the Rockies, losers of 14 of their last 17 games, 2-13 in Interleague Play, their worst performance against the American League. The Rockies dropped two of three to the AL West-leading Rangers and have won just one road series this season — none since taking two of three from the Brewers from April 20-22.
The Rockies last week went to a four-man rotation with a limit of around 75 pitches. The way the schedule worked, White (2-6) has yet to pitch on short rest. Still, he’s not pitching long. He has had season lows in his last three starts — four innings against the Athletics on June 14, 3 2/3 innings and five runs in a no-decision at Philadelphia on Tuesday, and six hits and four walks Sunday night as the Rockies (27-44) finished a three-city road trip 3-6.
