Cactus League: The Rangers Are 4-1

Well, that was exciting, wasn't it?

  • The Rangers went into the bottom of the 9th inning down 5-3 to the Giants. Some nice hitting by the young guys -- a James Jones single, a Ryan Rua 2 RBI double, and RBI single by Ronald Guzman -- got the job done. Yes, the games don't mean anything, but it's still nice to see these guys perform.
     
  • Speaking of Rua, he's quietly putting together another solid camp. He was 3-for-3 on the day with 3 RBI. His OPS is now up to 1.182.
     
  • A player I highlighted earlier this morning, Shin-Soo Choo, was 2-for-2 today. That was nice to see.
     
  • Colby Lewis wasn't at his sharpest early on, giving up a 2-run home run to the oft-injured Kyle Blanks. However, he settled down after that, going 3 innings and getting 49 pitches of work in.
     
  • Joey Gallo worked a walk today, and that's... something, I suppose.
