Ross' Scoreless Innings Streak Ends At 24

Robbie Ross' scoreless inning streak came to an end in the loss Wednesday



    Rookie reliever Robbie Ross saw his scoreless innings streak come to an end Thursday from his seat in the Rangers’ dugout. After allowing a leadoff double to the A’s Brandon Inge to open the seventh, Ross was pulled, giving way to Alexi Ogando--who surrendered a double to Josh Reddick to tie the game and bring an end to the impressive run for the lefty.

    Having tossed a scoreless sixth in the loss, Ross’ streak was at 24.0 innings when Inge crossed the plate. But Ross isn’t exactly losing sleep over the end of the run--in fact, he claims, he wasn’t even keeping tabs on the streak.

    “I didn’t know how long it was, so it’s not like it was a big deal,” Ross said, per the Dallas Morning News. “It’s not something I’ve been thinking about. Winning games is more important.”

    Ross now has a 1.12 ERA through 48.1 innings of work this season.
