ST25: Rangers beat White Sox, 4-3

Chan Ho Park turned in another performance that makes one think that he might be at least decent during the season instead of the steaming pile he’s been the last two years. But he did good last Spring Training, so I’m not terribly excited yet. His line was 6 innings, 3 earned runs – technically a “quality start”. He did also only allow three hits over six innings, but one of ‘em was a two run home run. 3 walks though.

Joaquin Benoit continues to make a case for himself out of the bullpen. He did well there again, and I’m convinced he’ll start there.

Offensively, it was the game of the longball. Of the seven runs scored total, 5 of them were the result of a home run. Three of ours were solo home runs, including the game winner by Laynce Nix. Nice to see the home runs come a bit more regularly.
