Texas Rangers rookie Wyatt Langford wasn't too pleased with a rough strike three call from home plate umpire Angel Hernandez during Friday's game against the Houston Astros.

"It's almost comical," Langford said, according to's Kennedi Landry.

Hernandez also called a pair of strikes to Langford earlier in the at-bat that appeared to be clearly outside the strike zone.

Langford finished the game 1-for-3 with a pair of runs scored, one RBI, and one walk as the Rangers defeated the Astros 12-8.
