There's no doubt that there is a rivalry going on between the Texas Rangers and Houston Astros. As divison foes in the AL West, these two teams are not built to like each other. In fact, the Rangers' Twitter account decided to have some fun on the Astros expense this weekend.

After the Astros lost Game 7 of the ALCS to the Tampa Bay Rays, The Rangers' tweeted a hilarious meme featuring Pope Francis holding up the final score of the game in all of its' glory.

It's great to see an MLB social media account being able to keep up with the latest crazes in the industry. This meme has been seen everywhere and it was used perfectly in this instance. It acted as a way the Rangers could rub it in a little bit on the Astros.

The Rangers did not have a very good season, finishing 22-38 and last in their division, but that means nothing once the team turns into fans watching the MLB playoffs from home. All bets are off as they are able to root against their rivals and enjoy the games.

By the looks of it, they have definitely done just that.
