ST26: Rangers win finale in Florida, 6-3 against Twins

The Rangers’ final Florida Spring Training game was today – a win over perennial spring opponents the Minnesota Twins.
John Wetteland got yet another start, and pitched one inning, giving up just a hit. Also on the positive side was 5 innings of no run, 3 hit baseball from Kenny Rogers (whose next game should be Monday – the opener), and an inning of no hit no run ball from Mike Munoz. Matt Perisho didn’t fare as well, all the runs we gave up came from him (all earned, too). Without a game log, it’s hard to tell how they scored, but overall, it didn’t seem like that bad of a pitching performance based on the box score.
On the offensive side, our eight hits were scattered over eight different players. Scott Sheldon made the most of his one at bat, getting a three run home run in the seventh to give us the lead in the game, and the win.
Now that we’re breaking camp, we should start to see the final roster cuts made. Once the final 25 are announced, I’ll be updating my roster page with that info. I’m also hoping they’ll have the Media Guide for sale – a ton of my roster info comes from there. :)
Can’t wait! I’m headed out to Arlington to see the Cardinals game. It’s so close, I can smell it!
