So close. Three outs away from a four game sweep in Anaheim.
A walk-off loss is always disappointing, but given the events of the previous three games, you can't be too upset about how things turned out. Taking three of four from the Angels, with the one loss being the game that set up as the most difficult matchup anyway, is a good outcome.
In T.R. Sullivan's game story, Mike Adams says he was trying to get the ball down to Mark Trumbo and induce a double play, but left his pitch out over the plate, and Trumbo took advantage of the bad location.
Richard Durrett has his thoughts on the loss at the ESPN Dallas blog.
Evan Grant has a piece on yesterday's game behind the paywall.
Durrett asks, what Ranger has surprised you the most this year, and runs through his candidates.
Evan Grant writes about the Jered Weaver/Mike Napoli kerfluffle last night at the DMN blog.
Wilson writes that, while the Rangers have a sizeable lead, the Angels have the easier schedule going forward, and thus A.L. West is still in play.
The S-T's notes talk about Neftali Feliz being secure in his closer role, Mitch Moreland's recent hot streak, and the addition of Tim Wood.
Sullivan's notes cover those topics as well, and also go into the Rangers' offensive performance on the road.
