Final Score in Arlington: Angels 0, Rangers 1

The Texas Rangers are running out of gas and nobody is noticing. Their slumping offense held on to a 1st inning HR by Michael Young to avoid being shutout by Joe Saunders. The Angels lefty came into the game with an ERA over 11 in Texas and allowed that lone run in 7 innings pitched. It is not even August and the Rangers can barely lift the bats off their shoulders, scoring a meager four runs in the first two games of their four game set with the reigning American League West champion Angels. The Halos will have no trouble repeating with the wilting Texas team phoning in the final 40 percent of the season like they did tonight.
