CONFESSION: I fell asleep. I know, I’m terrible. That’s just how this week has been. Seems I may have made the right decision as I’m sure I would have broken my laptop throwing it at my TV in the bottom of the 7th, you know if it had even survived the 6th inning.
Colby Lewis took the hill for the Rangers in Friday’s game against the Angels’ Jerome Williams. Honestly, Colby was pretty good, only giving up 4 hits, walking 1, striking out 5 and NO HOME RUNS. Oh, and he lasted 6 and 2/3 innings. So what went wrong?
Well, the Rangers had a 2-0 lead going into the 6th and Colby had only given up 1 hit. Well, a double, triple and a sac fly later, the game was tied. Then with 2 outs in the 7th, Colby gives up a single. Then, a Kinsler error (shocking, I know) would let the next runner get on AND would fail to end the inning. The next batter, Mike Trout, would then single, scoring both runnings. The Rangers wouldn’t really do anything the next few innings giving viewers even the slightest hope of a comeback.
FINAL: Rangers 2, Angels 4
With the win, the Angels are now within 4.5 games of the Rangers. Hopefully, our boys can bounce back today with Darvish taking on Wilson at 9:05pm CT.
