ST17: Rangers beat Mariners, 4-1

In a headline I hope to repeat a lot in 2007, “Rangers beat Mariners”. That hasn’t been an issue the last couple of years (for anyone, really), but you always want to beat your division foes, even in spring training.
This was a very well pitched game from the Rangers standpoint. Unlike a lot of spring training games, we used only two pitchers. Kevin Millwood started, and went 4 innings. He gave up two hits and one unearned run with three walks. A pretty good outing. However, Kameron Loe followed him, and gave up even less. Loe went five innings, and gave up just a lone hit, and no runs with two walks. That’s all there really is to report. Oh sure, I can quote more stats, but their lines to me are the most important thing of the day for Ranger pitchers.
Not a ton of offense either, just seven hits in all. The clear leader here was Brad Wilkerson, who went 2-4. He had two rbi’s and scored twice. Hairston also went 2-4, but didn’t score, and had just one RBI. Wilkerson’s RBI’s were also on a home run.
