by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/24/2015) Rangers pitcher Wandy Rodriguez had a rough night, allowing eight earned runs in Wednesday night's 8-2 loss to the Athletics. 

From the beginning, Rodriguez was off. He gave up all eight runs in the first two innings, surrendering five in the first frame. Rodriguez, who went four innings, was tagged for 11 hits, walked three batters and struck out four. 

“Before tonight I felt like Wandy competed very well, gave us competitive outings, moved the fastball around, used the breaking ball, really veteran outings for us,” manager Jeff Banister said, via the Dallas Morning News. “He got the outs when he needed to, was able to maneuver the ball around and pitched well. This is the first time he’s thrown a shoe really. Tough one. We’ll move on from it, play tomorrow, and I’m sure Wandy, he’ll erase this one from his memory bank. If I know him well, he’ll figure out what went wrong and move on.”

This was by far Rodriguez's worst outing of the season. He entered the game with a 2.37 ERA in his past three starts. 

Rodriguez fell to 4-3 record wise and has a 4.06 ERA.

Wandy Rodriguez secures spot in Braves rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

“This is a veteran guy, we brought him in to get one of these spots," Gonzalez said before Friday's game. "Now all of a sudden two are available because (Mike) Minor is shut down for a little bit.

“So I think the chances of him making this club are really, really good. No matter whether he gives up 10 today or throws a one-hitter. Because you like what you’ve seen, you like what he’s done in the past, and so yeah, as far as today -- just let him go out and pitch.”

Rodriguez did just that too. He tossed five scoreless innings, allowing no hits and three walks. He also struck out seven.

Following the game, Gonzalez confirmed Rodriguez will be part of the rotation to begin the season. He is 2-0 with a 0.69 ERA in four spring starts.

“The way he’s pitched, he’s earned a shot in this rotation,” Gonzalez said. “I mean, who else? We gave him a chance to sign here and gave him an opportunity. With Mike going down, he’s your most logical choice.”
