G98: Rangers lose (3-2). Different opponent, at least.

It’s always nice to see Camden Yards on my television. It’s one of the best ballparks that exists today. My wife and I were there a couple of years ago, and it was positively awesome. Unfortunately, the Texas Ranger teams we’ve been sending there the last couple of years haven’t been as spectacular (neither have the Oriole teams, either).
Overall, I can’t say it was a bad game, as it was generally well pitched, had some great defense – things that generally contribute to a quick, fresh game. However, we came out on the bottom side of this game after it seemed we’d win early on. The best moment was probably the crash between Doug Glanville and Laynce Nix in right center. It looked bad when they crashed into each other, but neither seemed affected by it.
There isn’t one moment that I can pin it to (other than the run the Orioles scored to take the lead) that says “Aha! That’s where we lost”. It just struck me as very “even” game. It’s a shame we lost, as I thought our pitching was pretty good.
