G4: Rangers brought back to Earth with 15-2 blowout loss

Well, the Rangers are no longer the only undefeated American League team. They were defeated quite soundly. Kris Benson punches his ticket for the “Passable in Spring Training, but smeg all in April” award for 2009. That was just bad. Oh, we’ll probably see stories by professional sports writers about how it wasn’t as bad as the line looked (5IP, 10H, 8R, 7ER, 2BB, 3K, 2HR), but there’s no beating around the bush. That was bad. Madrigal & Rupe were no better, go look up their lines. I’m only writing one bad line today.
The only really good thing was a home run by Nelson Cruz in the 9th, which Eric Nadel got REALLY excited about. :)

    Just found this blog. Happy to see a good blog for The Rangers. But yeah, Benson definitely disappointed. Hopefully he can rebound in his next start. Look foward to seeing how Harrison comes out in his first start of the season tomorrow afternoon.
    Keep up the good work with the blog!
