Rangers SP Nick Martinez climbs to 4-0 with easy victory


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2015) Surprising Rangers right-hander Nick Martinez remained on a roll Saturday. It's easy to get a win when your team scores 15 runs, but he continued to mow down the host Yankees.

Martinez pitched shutout ball until Carlos Beltran homered in the sixth. He allowed another solo blast to Didi Gregorius in the seventh, but he finished having yielded two runs on five hits in seven innings with two walks and five strikeouts. He raised his record to 4-0 with the effort, but his ERA actually slid up a bit to 1.96.

He did overcome two walks in the first inning before settling down.

"The first inning, I don't know how to explain it," he told MLB.com. "I just didn't have it. But after that, I locked in and went on the attack."

The performance marked the first time since his second start that he pitched through the seventh inning.

He will try to stay hot when he pitches against Boston next Thursday.


Rangers pitcher Nick Martinez maintains perfect record in win


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2015) Rangers pitcher Nick Martinez allowed one run on five hits in five innings of work in Texas' 5-1 win over the Indians on Sunday.

Martinez, who struck out six, only had one blemish on the day. He allowed the first three hitters in the fifth inning to reach base safely, including a Michael Brantley RBI double to center, scoring a run. After that, Martinez settled in and finished off his last inning of work.

Martinez, now 3-0 lowered his ERA to 1.88 in 48 innings of work. He will look to keep rolling Saturday against the Yankees.


Rangers P Nick Martinez gives up 3 runs in no-decision


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/13/2015) Rangers pitcher Nick Martinez gave up four runs — three earned — in Tuesday night's 7-6 loss to the Royals in 10 innings. 

Martinez earned a no-decision in the game after going 6 1/3 innings. He struck out four batters and walked one. He now has a 1.88 ERA. 

With the game going into extra innings, Stolmy Pimentel earned the loss.

After allowing one earned run in his first four starts, Martinez has now given up 8 earned runs in his past three. 

Martinez's next start is projected for Sunday against the Indians. 


Rangers P Nick Martinez pulled during fifth-inning jam


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2015) Rangers pitcher Nick Martinez allowed three runs and earned a no-decision in his team's 5-4 win over the Rays. 

Martinez went 4 2/3 innings and struck out two batters. Martinez ran into some trouble in the fifth inning, however, when he allowed three runs. He was relieved by Alex Claudio , who picked up the win.

Martinez gave up six hits and one walk. He now holds a 1.47 ERA for the season. 

His next start is projected for May 12 against the Royals. 


Bad luck results in no-decision for Rangers RHP Nick Martinez


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) The Athletics got one ball out of the infield in the seventh inning Saturday off Rangers heretofore sensational starter Nick Martinez. But it didn't matter. His victory was all but gone.

Martinez entered with a 3-1 lead, but an error set a disaster in motion. Brett Lawrie followed with a single to center, Mark Canha beat out an infield hit and Martinez hit Josh Phegley with a pitch to force in a run and his removal.

The right-hander watched as Oakland completed a six-run inning, but though his win was out the window, his teammates battled back for an improbable triumph.

Martinez finished having yielded five runs, but only two earned in six innings with no walks and two strikeouts. His ERA inched up to a still-brilliant 0.84. It marked the first time he has given up more than one earned run in five starts.

He will hope for better luck Thursday at Tampa Bay.

Rangers SP Nick Martinez goes seven innings strong for win No. 2


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2015) Rangers pitcher Nick Martinez put together a dominant outing to earn his second win of the season Tuesday night against the Angels.

"Plus command tonight," manager Jeff Banister said. "[Martinez] has bought into being able to pitch inside for strikes and pitch inside for effect, to open up the outside part of the plate."

Martinez (2-0) tossed six scoreless frames before allowing an unearned run to score on a Johnny Giavotella sacrifice fly in the seventh inning for his only blemish of the evening. He was charged with one unearned run on five hits and three walks while striking out one over seven innings of an 8-2 victory.

"It definitely felt great," Martinez said, per MLB.com. "We needed a big win. Everybody came out hot and we played good defense tonight."

Martinez has yet to surrender an earned run through his first 14 innings pitched. He is scheduled to make his Tuesday at Arizona. He went 4-5 with a 4.09 ERA over 83 2/3 innings of work away from Globe Life Park last season.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2015) Rangers pitcher Nick Martinez surrendered just four hits and two walks in seven scoreless innings while striking out five in his team's 10-1 win over the A's Thursday.

"Having that run support early and often definitely gives you that extra confidence that you need," Martinez said after the game, per the Associatd Press.

Martinez won the final spot in the rotation after pitching well for most of the spring, and though he struggled in his spring finale, he got back on track in his regular-season debut Thursday. All four of the hits he scattered were singles.

"Nick had a wonderful day," manager Jeff Banister said after the game, per MLB.com. "He was able to pitch off his fastball. He was able to throw the fastball in and also down. Nice command with the fastball. Had the changeup and breaking ball in play. Kept these hitters off balance pretty much all seven innings."

His next start is slated for Tuesday against the Angels.
