Things were clicking for Rangers reliever Kolby Allard on Friday. After taking over for Mike Foltynewicz, Allard threw three perfect innings, striking out five batters along the way.
Allard was truly brilliant, retiring all nine batters he faced on 45 pitches (32 strikes). In fact, he struck out five of the last six batters he faced. The 23-year-old now has a 1.80 ERA and nine strikeouts through five innings of relief work.
