G13: Rangers lose close one, 4-2 to Mariners

I was shocked. Ryan Drese pitched well. If he keeps this up, I might have to start liking him. He ran out of gas, and the bullpen let it down with a home run off the Eraser to give the M’s the win. Too bad, as Drese deserved a win. I actually am looking forward to his next start (which won’t be a problem, as Callaway is on the DL, and it looks like Colby Lewis is headed there). Oh well, there goes our great solid pitching staff out to injuries. :)
