G140: Rangers lose to Royals, 3-1

Well, this game started out with a great feeling. A leadoff home run, and some great pitching by John Thomson (perfect through 3+). But that’s about as far as it got. We never got any more runs, and while Thomson was pretty good, we didn’t get anything off the pitcher we were supposed to get in a trade with KC for Juan Gonzalez.
Darnit. The Angels lost, too – we missed a chance to pick up ground. Game notes are here.
