Rangers Over White Sox 5-1!

Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud:
Danks came into the ballgame with an ERA under 4 (I think).

I know Harrison was at (about) 100 pitches after 5 innings but I thought the new philosophy for the staff was to push them a little more than they're used to, especially if they're pitching well. And in this case McCarthy had a shutout after 5 IP.

Silver Lining:
Harrison looked better than Danks.

Rangers scored in 5 out of the six innings and, maybe more importantly, only one run was scored on a homer (lead off homer by Kinsler in the 1st)

The relievers only gave up one run.

ODay looked good again. Jennings gave up a run but still looked good. Wilson closed (non-save opportunity) and looked OK.

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenote(s):
During the ESPN broadcasts someone (Miller?) mentioned that in the off-season Jaramillo had worked with Josh Hamilton (currently on the DL) to re-work his swing. Why? What was wrong with his swing last year? Perhaps the "re-working" of Hamilton's swing by Jararmillo is why Hamilton's off to such a lousy start this year.
