G93: Rangers blown out by Angels, 11-2

Not much good happened in this one. We lost 11-1, and got a total of three hits, two of them by Eric Young. The Angels, on the other hand had 10 runs and 16 hits.
However, the really bad news was that we lost Ric-Rod for awhile. He was hit in the arm by a line drive off the bat of Robb Quinlan. Later on, they said he had a broken elbow, and is on the DL “indefinitely”. That’s really not good, as he was I’m sure you know was viewed as the permanent third starter. That’s just not good.
One interesting thing happened in this game you don’t often see. The Angels moved their DH in to play the field, which means they surrendered the DH – the pitcher was officially required to bat, although it didn’t happen as Anaheim used a PH in that spot in the ninth.
In case you missed it, this is my last update for about a week, as I’m going home to visit family and check out the new stadium the Phillies have. See you on June 30th as I’ll start up updates again when the Rangers come back home.
