The Rangers stranded a million runners today in a 3-2 game. That's how you lose a game where you out-hit the opponent 9-4, reach base via walk four times, and also reach via an error twice. Leonys Martin went 0-4 while striking out three times and stranding five of those runners. He's been so bad that Josh Hamilton -- who wasn't even a good center fielder when he was great -- is playing center field in his rehab outings.

Player of the Game: Elvis Andrus went 3-4 with a double, a stolen base, and a run driven in. Rougned Odor is your co-player of the game after going 3-5 with a double and a stolen base. The Rangers should never lose a game where Elvis and Roogie go a combined 6-9. That's inexcusable.
