HOUSTON — Jurickson Profar had just taken a cleat to the face and blood was trickling down his left cheek when Texas manager Jeff Banister went out to check on him in the sixth inning Sunday. Before Banister could say anything, his young shortstop spoke. “He told me he wasn’t coming out of the game,” Banister said. Profar hit a go-ahead double deflected by the pitcher and stayed in despite his injury as the Rangers became the first team to sweep Houston this year, beating the Astros 4-3. By Kristie Rieken.
