I guess 8-1 is just too much for 9th inning magic. Over the course of 162 games, you'll have some clunkers where nothing goes right. Tonight was one such clunker.
Rangers about to complete 30th inning of season. They have led at the end of 3 of them.— Evan Grant (@Evan_P_Grant) April 5, 2014
That's now at 36 innings.
Through 4 games, no Rangers starter has lasted 6 innings. First time that's happened since Rangers moved to Texas.— Evan Grant (@Evan_P_Grant) April 5, 2014
The Rangers run differential is now at minus nine.
It's a marvel that the Rangers are even 2-2 so far. Thank goodness for the Phillies' bullpen.
Player of the Game: Joe Saunders for showing the Rangers why Joe Saunders shouldn't appear in any more Rangers games.
