Rangers Lose 5-8

Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud:
McCarthy gave up 3 runs in the 5th, ruining what had been an excellent start to that point, leaving the game with a 5-4 lead instead of a 5-1 lead.

Jennings may not be the mid inning relief pitcher answer either, as he gave up 4 ER in 2 and 2/3 innings.

Rangers' offense had just 1 walk and 7 K's, not a good ratio.

Silver Lining:
Some batters that have been in early season slumps have come out of it a little, including Salty and Crash Davis.

Hammerin' Hank goes yard again. Again trade bait (for a pitcher)?

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenote(s):
Even with this bad outing by Jennings he still has an ERA under 5 and looks better than C.J. Wilson.


Rangers Win 6-5!

Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud:
C.J. Wilson tried to lose the game in the bottom of the 9th.
Rangers committed 2 errors.

Silver Lining:
Rangers jumped out to an early lead with offense up and down the lineup.
Hamilton had 2 hits, slump over?
Scooter Feldman gave them 5 IP with 1 ER.
Holland looked good in 3 IP with 1 ER.
Francisco saves the game. ERA for the season 0.00.

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenote(s):
How much more from C.J. Wilson do they need to see?
