ST28: Rangers lose to Red Sox, 11-8

We had a few home runs (Arod, Mike Young, & Ryan Ludwick). We also had a lot of bad pitching. Chris Michalak had to make a start in order to cover for our all of a sudden major health problems with our pitching. He was “eh”. Gave up 4 runs (3 earned) in 3 innings. John Rocker followed, and was horrible giving up four runs without getting anyone out! We had five pitchers after that (Miceli, Pena, R Rodriguez, Moreno, & Telford), all of whom combined to give up three runs over 5 innings. Blech.
Offensively, Hank Blalock continues to shine, now having been given the starters role at 3B. Mike Lamb? I don’t know what’s going to happen with him. I hear move to catcher, I hear trade – I have no idea, truthfully. He’ll probably start with Oklahoma, but I’d be surprised if he stays with us all year. Anyway, Blalock had our best offensive performance of the day, going 2 for 3, with two RBI’s, and a run scored. He’s looking good!
On the other side, Nomar Garciaparra (my wife’s favorite player) lookd pretty good from the clips I saw on TV, and from the box score. I hope he bounces back, the Sox will need him.
