HOUSTON — Marcus Semien saw it the whole way. Corey Seager saw it, too.

The entire Rangers bench also knew in the eighth inning Sunday that Jose Altuve didn’t properly retouch second base as he returned to first following a leaping catch by Evan Carter at the left-field wall.

Even Altuve knew.

“He was pretty beside himself at first base,” first baseman Nathaniel Lowe said.

    That Evan Carter ground ball had me wishing he did go for 2nd, but after seeing him slow down and then almost get thrown out if the infielder caught the throw, it made the play seem like boneheaded baserunning that worked out luckily. If he had been sprinting the whole time through, it would make sense to go for 2.
