Rangers Offense Bad But Win 2-1

Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud: Again, the Rangers' offense is bad.  2 runs with lots of opportunities.

Glass Half Full / Silver Lining: Tepesch was great.  Through 6 IP he had a 2 hitter going!

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenotes: With the Rangers only managing 2 runs, Rookie Nick Tepecsh was pitching a 2 HITTER WITH NO WALKS after 6 IP and I swear Tom A. Greive (TAG, our local announcer) said something close to the following, "....for the most part he's been in pretty good control of the game."  For the most part!?!?!  How about dominating?  What game was TAG watching?  Why doesn't TAG stick to what he's good at and eat more cookies or announce more birthdays?

End of the day we have the old guys from the Muppets in the balcony announcing the games for us.  Enjoy.

And yeah, I could do better.


Rangers Pound Halos Like a Drum 11-3

Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud: The Rangers' bats beat up on a young guy making his first MLB start so let's not assume the offense has turned the corner just quite yet.

And Moreland took a step backward against lefties, and generally at the plate as the only Ranger without a hit.

Glass Half Full / Silver Lining: Pretty much almost every Ranger contributed at the plate, especially in the 4th inning when they put up a huge crooked number.

And Yu Darvish was, one again, amazing giving up only 3 hits in 6 IP, and had 11 K's against only 2 BB's.

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenotes: I know it's early in the season but the Rangers still have not lost a series.  They did split a 4 game series versus the Mermen and split their 2 games versus the Cubbies (the middle game was rained out and will be made up).  Not too shabby with the offense still not quite out of its early season funk.
