The Angels came back from a 3-0 deficit to win 6-5 and kick Texas down a notch in playoff hopes, dreams and mathematical chances. All of the Rangers "fans" on earth were watching a public access Dallas Cowboys preseason update so the Gulf Of Arlington did not see its bottom line suffer in the least.
The big blow was a three-run homerun by noted Ranger killer Mark Trumbo. When a dog poops on a carpet someone rubs his nose n it in order that he understand to not do it again. What will someone be rubbing the nose of the Ranegrs GM in - why trade for Matt Garza when all he does is serve up fat, hittable pitches to a team that is seventeen games out first place? How does it smell? The Rangers got a lot of effort from Elvis Andrus and then... oh yeah, there were eight guys in uniform but they didn't amount to a hill of beans that their hillbilly fan base would switch over from Hee-Haw reruns to watch.
Meanwhile C.J. Wilson remains the king of the nibblers but got the W in a random, almost boring effort. He and his old teammates will be playing golf together on the first of October if this is what the Rangers have amounted to in the middle of a pennant race.
