ST Game 9: Rangers lose to Angels, 6-4

I didn’t realize that this game was on XM Radio right away, or I would have listened to it earlier. When I started listening, we were down 3-0 going into the top of the seventh. It was at that point we put together a two out rally to take the lead, 4-3. It was started on a two out two strike single by Gerald Laird, and then several other hits followed at that point. Right after that inning ended, I had to stop listening, as I had something I had to do. Good thing, as we immediately gave up the lead, and never scored again. So I got to hear the best part. :)
Of the 6 runs we gave up today, only two were earned. Kameron Loe gave up 3 runs, all unearned. Juan Domignuiez gave up 3 as well, two of his were earned. What’s more amusing is that the four runs we scored in the seventh were all unearned. Of the 10 runs scored by both teams, 8 of them were unearned. That doesn’t usually happen. Bartolo Colon looked in mid season form according to his box score. 4.2IP, 4H, 0ER, 5K.
Offensively, Gary Matthews Jr went 3 for 3 with a stolen base. That was the leading offensive performance by a Ranger today. On the flip side, Soriano still hasn’t gotten a hit in all of spring training. I think he’s 0-13 now or something like that.
This loss drops us under .500 for the spring.
