The Rangers Are 1-0

The bats may have been ugly with only one hit, but Cole Hamels did exactly what the Rangers acquired him for: Kept his team in the game.

His final line: 2 earned runs on 4 hits, 3 walks, and 8 strikeouts. The walks are more than you'd like to see, but in Cole's defense, Jim Joyce's strike zone was all over the place today. All in all, it's always fun to win on Opening Day, so I'll take it.
