The latest news and notes on inflamed nerves and placid bats

Where have you gone, Rangers runs scored? Lone Star Ball turns its angry eyes to you.

Gregg Bell over at ESPN Dallas reacts rapidly to the Rangers' anemic 4-3 loss to the Seattle Mariners. The Rangers have a travel day so we're all Dallas Stars fans today.

T.R. Sullivan recaps the loss and writes about the offense failing to put together any sort of sustained rally against a guy with a 16.20 ERA going into the game yesterday.

Jeff Wilson's game story focuses on Nick Tepesch failing to pick up a win in the second start of his career. Tepesch wasn't as sharp as he was in his debut, but he pitched decently. The offense and the defense couldn't be bothered to do him any favors, however.

Bell writes more on Tepesch's outing, noting the lack of sinkers thrown by Tepesch in his second start. Despite shelving his sinker yesterday, Tepesch still collected 13 of his 17 outs via ground out or strike out.

Behind the DMN paywall, Evan Grant writes about the bats feeling the effects of the chilly Northwest over the weekend. It's a good thing that it's bright and warm in Chicago in April, right? Right?

Bell has yet more on the absence of offense of late with quotes from several members of the lineup on how they plan to get things going.

T.R. Sullivan's Notebook covers Elvis Andrus taking Joe Ortiz suit shopping to reward him for his first Big League win, Leury Garcia's exciting weekend, and various other items.

Wilson has notes on Matt Harrison needing a second cortisone shot which might prolong his stint on the DL, Geovany Soto's return to Chicago, and Elvis' well-suited generosity.

Finally, Grant has a blog post up with Ron Washington and Andrus bestowing praise on Garcia after Garcia had a nice starting lineup debut over the weekend.
