That got ugly fast in the top of the 8th versus the O's

Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud: After 7 it was a tie ballgame, 2-2.

Then, Ogando and Cotts and Tolleson were hit like a drum in the top of 8. The O's batted around in the 8th, is that good?

After 8 the O's were winning 8-2. Ouch.

The Rangers only managed 2 runs on 5 hits through 8.

Glass Half Full / Silver Lining: Saunders pitched an OK to good game, getting the Rangers to the 7th inning only giving up 2 runs. The game was tied 2-2 after 7.

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenotes: Why can't Wash (or any manager in MLB) put in the Ranger's closer Soria (or any MLB closer) in the 8th and ask him to get 6 outs instead of 3?  Everyone would need to understand that depending on the number of pitches thrown by the closer that he might not be available the next day.

Excellent point re asking closer to get the six outs. Wash is stubborn like a mule. Not that it mattered but he should let cotts in if he is worried about not going through the pen. His in game managerial skills often are questionable.

Another trip to the dl. Believe to be 19 thus far. We must have the record. What a crock. Fire every trainer on staff. http://rangersblog.dallasnews.com/2014/06/texas-rangers-lose-mitch-moreland-to-ankle-surgery.html/
