Rangers beat Rockies 4-3 despite Trevor Story’s two home runs

Texas pitcher A.J. Alexy won his major league debut pitching one-hit ball through five shutout innings.

ARLINGTON, Texas — A.J. Alexy won his major league debut pitching one-hit ball through five shutout innings while DJ Peters, Leody Taveras and Nick Solak homered in consecutive innings as the Texas Rangers hung on to beat the Colorado Rockies 4-3 on Monday night. 

Alexy allowed only a second-inning double to C.J. Cron. 

The 23-year-old who was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock earlier in the day struck out four and walked three throwing 81 pitches. 

Local product Trevor Story hit a solo homer in the seventh inning and a two-run homer in the eighth for Colorado, but it wasn’t enough for the Rockies.

The two teams will play again on Tuesday night before wrapping up the series on Wednesday.
