Reid Detmers provides quality start as Angels beat Rangers

The Angels beat the Texas Rangers 9-3 on Tuesday at Angel Stadium.

Reid Detmers was efficient over seven innings on the mound, likely his final start of the season for the Angels. He held the Rangers to a single, first-inning run on four hits while striking out seven over 100 pitches.

It was Detmers’ ninth quality start of the season, leaving him with a 4.48 earned-run average and a 4-10 record in 28 starts.

After Brandon Drury’s three-run homer, a towering shot off of Rangers starter Cody Bradford, the Angels tacked on one more run in the fourth before pulling away with a five-run fifth. That inning included RBIs by Zach Neto, Eduardo Escobar (his second of the night) and Michael Stefanic.
