G103: Rangers drop another to Royals, 12-8

I was at this game (was one of my season ticket games), and quite honestly, I wish I didn’t have to be. I was so tired from the trip home last night (I never got in until 2AM, and I was supposed to be home around 10PM or so). Tack on the heat, and I wasn’t feeling that good during this game, and it had nothing to do with the team. I was feeling queasy, so I left in the top of the 7th inning – I abhor this kind of behaviour, but I will do it for illness. :(
The game itself wasn’t a whole lot better. It looked good early, with a 5-0 lead after two innings, but that was about it for us, except for a couple more runs late in the game. We had a pitching meltdown, which is rare for us this season, unlike past seasons. :)
Jonathan Johnson pitched several innings in the middle, and appeared to be a sacrificial lamb. He was lit up pretty well, but he stayed out there for three full innings, when he should have rightfully been pulled very quickly. He was sent right back down after this appearance, I doubt we’ll see him again this season before the September callups.
