The Texas Rangers had what can only be considered a real trouncing today at the hands of the Chicago White Sox. The Texas Rangers lost the game by a score of 16-2, and needless to say Robbie Ross was not at his sharpest this afternoon. There were a lot of weird plays that happened that made it seem that things just were not going to go the Texas Rangers way today, but at least one good thing came out of it. Texas Rangers prospect Luis Sardinas got his first major league hit. He is up because of the injury to Jim Adduci, and since the game was out of hand Ron Washington decided to put the kid into the game.
Other than that there really was not a lot that went well for the Texas Rangers today. As a long time baseball watcher, I am not surprised when the team loses big a few days after winning bid. It is no shock that teams win some and lose some, and I personally don’t see this game as a big deal. Sometimes teams get blown out, no matter how good or bad that they are. So chalk today’s game up in the loss column and lets get ready to go to Oakland and face off against the A’s.
On a side note, we are taking today off for the Ranger Report Podcast and will return next week with an all new show!
