ST19: Rangers lose to A’s, 9-7

I’m about out of time to write tonight, so I’ll make this one short.
Josh Hamilton walked and doubled to extend his on base streak to 13, where it ended, as he struck out on the fourteenth.
Kevin Mench went 2-3 with a double, raising his spring average to .355.
Gerald Laird homered while going 1-4, making his average .276.
David Murphy continued a pretty torrid pace, but not like Hamilton’s. Murphy is now batting .417.
Sidney Ponson pitched like the guy everyone expects him to be. Bad. 2.1IP, 6H, 4ER, 2BB. Bleh.
I twisted my ankle, and it’s starting to hurt a lot just sitting here, I need to go soak it in the tub. Yeah, I know, TMI, but it’s hurting me to write right now. :)
