G111: Myette stinks up the joint; Rangers lose 11-3

Aaron Myette continues to stink up the joint, giving up 8 earned runs in 3.2 innings. It’s puzzling, as he does well in AAA, just not up here. Rob Bell came out of the pen and did well, giving up one run in 3.1 innings. Dennys Reyes went two and gave up two. So far Reyes hasn’t been anything special, although he’s left handed – I guess that’s something.
However, the story here was Pedro. He went 7 innings, giving up one walk, striking out 10, and just three hits – with no runs. Very much the pitcher advertised. In fact, I was annoyed that he was pulled from the game, I wanted to see him go nine and shut us out. :)
We got three late, but the game really wasn’t as close as 11-3 sounds (as if that’s close). It really should have been 11-0. :)
