Where, oh where has the Rangers offense gone? I feel like they used it all in the Detroit series. Or something. All I know is I want it back.
Yu Darvish pitched six frames, and the only Oakland run was a home run by Yeonis Cespedes. Honestly, Darvish wasn’t his sharpest tonight, but he was still good enough for a win. If only he’d had a little offense to help him out.
Unfortunately, that was nowhere to be found. The Rangers only managed three hits all night, and they all came from the bottom of the order — Craig Gentry, A.J. Pierzynski and Jurickson Profar. There weren’t even any walks. So those were literally the only three Rangers base runners all night. And they couldn’t get past second base. Sigh.
Now the boys are in jeopardy of being swept, unless they find their bats tomorrow.
KISS: Neal Cotts had a nice shutdown inning in his Rangers debut.
MISS: Mitch Moreland had three strikeouts for the night. So did Elvis Andrus.
Oakland :: 1R, 7 H, 11 TLOB
