I would say the worst thing about today is my in-laws are in town but the Rangers getting swept happened, so I guess there’s that. I should head down to my local tavern, have a few draughts and hope for some wins this next series.
Matt Harrison pitched a complete game. Giving up only two runs, walking two and striking out five. He allowed the go ahead run on a solo home run by newly aquired Kevin Youkilis in the sixth.
A lonely RBI single by Beltre that bounced off the leg of White Sox starter Jose Quintana in the fourth. The only other hit of the afternoon was by Kinsler.
End of the bench
-Rangers had the MLB-longest active streak without being swept in series of 3 or more games (52 series)
- Saturday reinforcements start to come as Derek Holland will be making his first start coming off the DL and shortly after the break the pitching staff should see Lewis, Ogando and Uehara back.
LH Martin Perez makes his 2nd start of the year [1-0, 9.00 ERA] v. Twins LH Francisco Liriano [2-7, 5.40 ERA, 74 ERA+, 1.47 WHIP]
