Game 60: They used it all up last night! 3-2 Rangers
You had a feeling that after a large offensive outburst like last night, tonight would be much more somber. Well, the Red Sox gave John Lackey no support and ended up going 0 for 7 with runners in scoring position to lose the game 3-2. In fact, Boston only managed 5 hits all game, and in one inning last night, they recorded 6 hits. Yikes. Here are the four at bats that changed the game:
1) Pow-Pow-Power. Top of the fourth inning, and Adrian Beltre is facing Lackey with two outs. Beltre swings at a 1-2 pitch and crushes it to center field. It barely makes it over the fence, but when you see him make contact, that is a no-doubter. 1-0 Rangers.
2)The little engine that could. Bottom of the sixth inning, and pitcher Alexi Ogando has two men out and the bases empty. With Dustin Pedroia up, Ogando looks to keep the ball out of the zone and he throws three straight balls to Pedey. Pedroia has the green light to swing at 3-0 and misses...

Your browser does not support iframes. The Texas Rangers were getting beat by the Boston Red Sox so badly on Tuesday night, manager Ron Washington decided to spare his pitchers and let a position player hurl an inning during their 17-5 loss. That player was outfielder David Murphy, who turned out to have more success [...]
Texas Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz gave a maximum effort in pursuit of a Mike Carp home run. Cruz fell over the outfield wall into the Boston Red Sox bullpen. Cruz would have had the web gem of the season unfortunately he came up short and Carp circled the bases. The “Cruz Missile” will regroup and hope for a successful re-launch the next time someone dials long distance.
John Lackey may not have gotten the win Wednesday night, but the right-hander impressed his teammates and coaches with yet another quality start.
In six innings of work, Lackey allowed just one run — a home run by former teammate Adrian Beltre — on five hits and zero walks. Starts like this have been the norm for the veteran for nearly a month, as he’s allowed just four total...
Walking somebody to bring up David Ortiz — that just sounds wrong.
Ortiz made it look wrong, too, on Thursday night. After seeing Dustin Pedroia intentionally walked in front of him, Ortiz walloped the first pitch he saw in the bottom of the ninth inning into the Rangers’ bullpen. The jack scored three runs and gave Boston a 6-3 win after the team had trailed for most of the...

Photo by Jim Rogash/Getty ImagesIt was shaping to be a SquanderPalooza of epic proportions. Boston had left 10 men on base during multiple opportunities to plate a tying run. Then, in the seventh, the Carmine Hose pushed across a run with some hustle by Mike Napoli and a great take-out slide by David Ortiz. It was Ortiz who untied things for good in the ninth—clouting a three...
One thing you can say about Texas Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz is that he'll go beyond the call of duty to attempt to rob a home run.
During last night's game against the Boston Red Sox, Nelson attempted to rob a home run in the fifth inning hit by Boston's Mike Carp.
Watch as Nelson does his best to bring it back but ends up falling over the fence and into the...

Jarrod Saltalamacchia teaches how to properly block the plate on a play at home.
The Texas Rangers have activated Alexi Ogando from the DL and he’s starting Wednesday against the Boston Red Sox. Ogando returns to a 3.08 ERA on the season. On May 4th, he spun 6 innings of one-run ball in a victory over the Red Sox so Ogando is probably worth rolling the dice on.
The post Alexi Ogando Activated from DL appeared first on FFLockerRoom | Fantasy Sports Advice...
After offense was easy to find last night, it disappeared again tonight. The Rangers bullpen was able to mostly shut down the Red Sox after Alexi Ogando went 5 2/3 innings, and all the Red Sox bullpen could do was try to keep Boston in the game.
Here are the four bases:
First Base: Walks hurt more than a sunburn. Sunburns sometimes are not to bad, and sometimes walks are not either...

Nelson Cruz makes an attempt to rob Carp of a home run...
