Must Read

Meibrys Viloria pinch-hit the tiebreaking single in the seventh, and the Texas Rangers beat the Chicago White Sox 3-2 on Thursday.

The Rangers became the first team since 1986 for which two of their first-round draft picks have debuted, starting in the same game.

Left-hander Cole Ragans, who had two Tommy John surgeries after being drafted in 2016, gave up an unearned run over five innings of his debut game.

Bubba Thompson, a first-round pick on the team in 2017, went 1-for-3 with a bunt single in his first major league game. He was called up the same Thursday to play left field and bat ninth in the order.

Brock Burke (5-2) struck out four over two scoreless innings after relieving Ragans, who struck out three batters, walked four and allowed three singles in a 93-pitch debut.

Jonathan Hernández processed the ninth episode to provide his second rescue in a couple of attempts.

Leody Taveras had an RBI single as Texas snapped a seven-game losing streak at home.

The loss went to Dominican starter Johnny Cueto (4-5), who had not lost in his previous six starts.

For the White Sox, Cubans Luis Robert 3-1 with a run scored, José Abreu 3-1 with a run scored, Yoán Moncada 4-1, Yasmani Grandal 3-0. Dominican Eloy Jimenez 4-0.

For the Rangers, the Cuban Adolis García 4-1. The Dominicans Taveras 3-2 with a run scored and an RBI, Ezequiel Durán 3-1 with a run scored, Eliher Hernández 2-0. The Colombian Viloria 1-1 with an RBI.
