Rangers Win 7-1! Still "First Place Texas Rangers"

Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud:
I got nothin' here really. Great game all around on O & D.

I guess if I had to be picky Padilla served up 4 walks and had to get himself out of a jam early on. 

Rangers had 6 LOB.

But really, that's about it.

Glass Half Full / Silver Lining:
Padilla gave up 1 hit. In his last 2 starts he's given up 2 hits total, that's gotta be a record or something (it is, he's the 1st Ranger in history to accomplish that feat).

The Rangers' offense, without Hamilton or Young, put up some runs to support a great start by their hurler.

The Rangers bullpen only gave up 1 hit, for a 2 hit game.

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenote(s):
Your Texas Rangers lead the division by 1/2 a game over the Halos and have 3 game set against same coming soon. And the Halos to date have won 4 straight. Lastly, and again, if they can win that series against the Halos, or better yet sweep, we'll be talking about the Rangers all summer, I think. I hate to put to place too much weight on a May series against a divisional rival but, if you look at the schedule this is a big deal with inter-league play coming up, especially for a young ball club.
