Thoughts on a 16-2 loss

Tom Pennington

Let's not think about this, huh?

ChiSox 16, Rangers 2

  • That was unpleasant.  Robbie Ross wasn't awful -- he struck out 8 and walked no one in 5.1 innings, allowing just 7 hits -- but 2 of those hits were homers, and 7 runs ended up scoring off of him in all.  Shawn Tolleson wasn't good, either, Hector Noesi was horrible, Kevin Kouzmanoff made a key error when the game was still close, and a two out intentional walk to Jordan Danks backfired, as it should have.
  • Oh, and the bats were awful.  The Rangers recorded two hits.  One of them was of the infield variety by Luis Sardinas, his first major league hit in his first major league game.  That was the lone bright spot from today's game.
  • As ugly as the blowout was, the Rangers still took two of three against the ChiSox, and have the third best record in the A.L. (tied with the Yankees for third, if you want to be technical).  They are heading to Oakland in pretty decent shape, considering the plague o' locusts which has stricken the roster.  So let's forget about this game and look forward to three games in Oakland.
