Is everyone back off of their respective ledges? Yes? OK, good.
This one was never in any real doubt. As awful as last night's game was, today's game was equally great, minus a poor misplay by Ryan Rua in left field. Nick Martinez threw 7 solid shutout innings, the Rangers blasted 4 home runs, and ended up taking care of business with a 10-1 victory. To further highlight the dichotomous nature of the last two games, Oakland committed 3 errors today
If I had told you prior to Monday that the Rangers would head back to Arlington for the home opener having earned a 2-2 series split in Oakland, I think many of you would have taken it. Now to take care of business at home against the Astros.
