G111: Rangers bombed out by Blue Jays, 19-4

Oh my god. 19-4. What a complete, utter, and total fiasco. Make it worse, I was there! My wife and I stuck it out, we didn’t miss any of this exciting action. :)
Not a whole lot to say about this one, other than we sucked. Roger Delgado continued his assault here with a three run home run in the first inning that put the Jays up for good immediately.
It was the MLB debut of Doug Davis, who gave up 10 runs in 2 1/3 innings giving him an ERA of 38.57! Davis’ runs were one run short of the Ranger record for most runs allowed by one pitcher in a game. And of course, Davis was sent back down to AAA after this. That’s too bad, I hate to see young kids get lit up like this. We also set a record by allowing 25 hits in a 9 inning game.
About the only Ranger highlights were a Pudge home run, a Raffy home run, and Mike Morgan striking out the side in the 5th. That’s about it. A mess all around. :(
This was the first in the last eight series that the Rangers lost the series.
