ST31: Rangers offense wakes up, we beat twins 11-4

I’m pretty busy getting ready for a short vacation while I have some relatives in this weekend, so I am not writing much today. It was nice to see the offense back, even though it was only against the Twins.
No errors again, which is nice to see. Without looking it up, there’s been a few no error game since the obscene 5 error game last week.
Commentary by Jim Meeks:
Rangers’ righthander Rick Helling hurled 7 innings Wednesday and the Ranger bats were once again alive and well, as the Rangers shelled the Twins 11-4.
Helling gave up two 2-run homers to Ron Coomer (surprisingly, his 5th and 6th homers of the spring) in back-to-back innings but that was the extent of the Twinkies’ damage. Helling’s outing was the longest by any Rangers’ pitcher this spring to date.
Tim Crabtree and Eric Gunderson each had a scoreless inning of work. Gunderson has been especially effective as of late and Crabtree seems to be bouncing back now after a poor outing last week.
Offensively, the Rangers banged out 17 hits with Roberto Kelly, Juan Gonzalez and Royce Clayton doing the major damage. Kelly hit a 3-run shot and Gonzo and Clayton added a couple hits each. The team collected 6 extra base hits. Every Rangers’ hitter got a hit except Milt Cuyler (0 for his last 19) an it appears he’s lost any chance he had to make the team.
The Rangers did not commit an error on Wednesday, the 3rd time in 4 games they have gone errorless.
