Angel Hernandez on the field. Kyle Seager at the plate. Ron Washington in the dugout. It's the perfect storm for the Rangers to look inept in a game they likely should have won.

Neal Cotts has allowed two home runs this season. Both have come against the Mariners. Both at The Ballpark. Both to give the Mariners a late lead. The Rangers came back to win the other game that Cotts gave up a dong. Unfortunately, tonight, the Rangers couldn't muster another come from behind win despite having their chances.

Player of the Game: Derek Holland pitched seven scoreless innings, but -- like many times this season -- he has nothing to show for it.
