Rangers Lose to Halos 15-8

Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud: That's right 15-8, the Rangers were beat like a drum.  Oz gave up 8 hits and 3 HR's in 5.1 IP.  Not good.

Glass Half Full / Silver Lining: Wasted a great Josh (breakout game?) effort, he went 3-4, with one BB and a HR, scoring twice.  Rangers put up 8 runs albeit in a losing effort.

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenotes: If you would have told me the Rangers would have dropped the claw on the Halos to the tune of 8 runs I would have bet dollars to donuts the Rangers would have come away with a 'W'.  Shows what I know.

Mitch Moreland is back and the Rangers traded for catcher Soto from the Cubs, a former rookie of the year for a minor league pitcher.  But, that's one too many catchers with the big club so sadly that means that apparently catcher Yorvit Torrealba will designated for assignment by the Rangers. If that's true then so long Yorvit and thanks.

Now the Rangers are up 4 on the Halos and A's.  The A's play the Rays on the West Coast so if the A's win tonight the A's will be 3.5 behind the Rangers.  Again, it's a 3 team race in the wild West Division.
