They get a chance to start fresh Friday. One chance - or the season will be over for the two-time defending American League champions long before another World Series.
The Rangers are home Friday night against Baltimore and former manager Buck Showalter in the winner-take-all AL wild card game.
Right-hander Yu Darvish makes his major league postseason debut for Texas against the only AL team he didn't face his rookie season.
Lefty Joe Saunders, a late-season acquisition by Baltimore, has lost all six of his previous starts at Rangers Ballpark with a 9.38 ERA.
