BALTIMORE — Texas reliever Ross Wolf threw just one pitch on Monday night against Baltimore. It was arguably the biggest pitch of the night.
Wolf, a former Wabash Valley College hurler, threw a changeup to pinch hitter Ryan Flaherty, who represented the tying run at the plate in the sixth inning. Flaherty grounded out, preventing Baltimore from making inroads to an eventual 8-5 Texas victory.
Texas manager Ron Washington told reporters after the game: “It was a huge pitch.”
It was the ninth one-pitch performance by a Texas pitcher since 2010 that resulted in an out.
Wolf has now appeared in 12 games for the Rangers. He has a 1-2 record with an ERA of 1.95 in 27.2 innings of work.
