G26: Rangers lose ugly to Cleveland, 10-4

Very sloppy game, and our offense did the “get it all at once” theory which seems to be the norm so far this year. However, when the “all at once” is only 4, and you give up double digits, you can see what happened.
We committed four errors, and this was generally a rather bad played game overall. The Rangers historically always seem to be a rather bad team on a day game after a night game. Don’t know how much else to talk about this. To quote one of Jim’s earlier commentaries.. “Ugly, ugly, ugly!”. I had a more interesting time seeing “The Matrix” yesterday than I did listening to this game!
Commentary by Jim Meeks:
The Rangers played sloppily Monday in all stages and lost to the Cleveland Indians 10-4.
Kenny Lofton was the big stars for the Indians, gathering 4 hits and 4 RBI, including a homer.
The Rangers had only 6 hits, none for extra bases. Rafael Palmeiro had 2 of the hits, raising his average to .329. Lee Stevens bounced into 2 double plays, effectively stymying whatever chance the Rangers had. At one point in the 3rd inning, the Rangers rallied from a 4-0 deficit to tie the game, but that was all the runs they would get.
The Red Shoes also committed 4 errors, leading to 2 unearned runs.
Starter Mike Morgan was unusually bad, perhaps bothered with the flu or perhaps he just a bad outing. His 5 runs in 3 innings was by far his worst outing of the year, raising his ERA to 4.05.
