ST7: Rangers beat A’s, 7-6

Taking a short break from writing a recap due to illness in the family. This is a placeholder page.
After looking at this again a few days later, it would seem that Vicente Padilla did not have a good game. His line shows six hits, two walks and three earned runs in three innings. Oakland’s starter (Dan Haren) did not fare that poorly, giving up just one run in his three innings of work. Frank Francisco, who has been reportedly not so great to start the spring tossed a shutout inning of work and got the win in the game, actually. AJ Murray struck out two of the three batters he faced, and Joaquin Benoit chipped in with a scoreless couple of innings of his own. German & Galarraga (the guys not likely to be with us come April) gave up the rest of the runs the Rangers allowed.
On the other side, we had three doubles and a triple. No home runs though, but enough singles to come through from behind and beat the A’s 7-6. Catalanotto and Botts were both 2-2 today, Sosa & Kinsler were 2-3. No real “leader” on offense this game.
