ST11: Rangers pound Angels, 13-2

Where do you start with this one? The Rangers mashed thirteen runs, got twenty hits, and gave up not a whole lot of everything. A great effort all around.

With 20 hits, there’s bound to be several folks with a few of ‘em. Blalock went 4 for 4, Adrian Gonzalez went 3 for 6, Gerald Laird was 2 for 4, as was Mike Young. There’s offense all over the place in this game, which was nice to see. The only problem was that the pitchers they did it against aren’t likely to be there come April, so that tempers the output a bit.

Pitching wise, RA Dickey continues to show to me that he deserves a starting rotation spot, going 4 innings, giving up just 1 run (on a solo home run), and walking just one. Mickey Calloway pitched very well against his former club. He went 4 innings, giving up squat. No runs, no hits, and getting two K’s. Erasmo Ramirez had a not particuarly great 9th inning, but between the three pitchers, we gave up 2 runs on 7 hits over 9 innings. A good day’s work.
