ST9: Rangers lose to Giants, 5-3

As yesterday was a busy day for me, I didn’t get to play refresh with the box score for this game.

Brian Jordan got to join the party in an A game, going 2 for 3 with an RBI. Hank Blalock was 2 for 4 with 2 RBI’s. Laynce Nix was also 2 for 4. Pitching wise, the Rangers site and the Dallas Morning News all say the Rangers were happy with Chan Ho yesterday. I don’t know if that was solely because he pitched “OK” after being hurt the day before, or if it was something I couldn’t see in a box score. Either way, Park went four innings, giving up 3 runs. Although the stories said a couple of his innings were brilliant. We’ll see.

Kenny Rogers was formally given the job of opening day pitcher in Oakland – I wonder who will pitch the home opener – might be Kenny again. Kenny went 3 innings, giving up just one run, and from what I can tell pitched pretty decently.

Brett Tomko, someone the Rangers were after, but I didn’t want, gave up 8 hits over three innings. How he escaped with just one run is a bit beyond me, but I still feel relieved he signed elsewhere.
