I missed the entire Detroit series (which the Rangers ended up winning) and returned to viewing tonight. I would like to exchange this game for yesterday’s. Or maybe Saturday’s. Yeah, definitely Saturday’s. I want to see Mike Olt’s walk-off single. But no. I didn’t get to see any of that. Instead, I got bad Ryan Dempster and a mostly flat Rangers offense.
The game got off to a good start. The Rangers scored one run in each of the first two innings, and Dempster didn’t allow a single baserunner in those frames.
It all came unraveled in the 3rd. Dempster quickly loaded the bases on two singles and a one-out walk. It was all set up perfectly for Nick Swisher’s home run. As if that wasn’t enough, Dempster decided to load the bases again. At least only one more run scored. But I was completely deflated.
The Rangers’ offense seemed to be too. They managed just three hits the rest of the game.
And I really don’t have much more to say.
