As far as deflating early-season losses go, this one would have to be near the top of the list.
The Rangers managed to put 4 runs up on David Price, Nick Martinez left the bullpen with a lead after six, but Neal Cotts simply couldn't get it done tonight. A 2-run double in the bottom of the 8th put the Rays on top for good at 5-4.
Suddenly, the return of Yu Darvish doesn't have the same excitement. Let's hope the Rangers don't waste a gem tomorrow.
