G57: Rangers drop series opener to Toronto, 6-3

Scott Feldman had probably his worst outing as a starter in 2009 on Monday. Funny thing is if you look at his numbers (six innings pitched, seven hits, two walks, four earned runs), they’re not that awful. Not great, but not Chan Ho Park or Mark Clark level of pitching. Still, given how well he has pitched this season so far, it seems pretty bad.
Jason Jennings followed Scott and gave up a few himself in his two innings. Four hits, two runs.
Offensively the real damage for Toronto was done by one guy. Adam Lind. He had two two run home runs, each coming after a walk to another Blue Jay. Take Lind out, and things would have been a whole lot different.
The Rangers runs came on a bunch of singles, mostly. Only David Murphy had anything other than a single; he had two doubles. The Rangers did try a suicide squeeze, and it was suicide. Elvis Andrus missed the bunt, which hung out Marlon Byrd to dry coming home. :)
I missed a decent amount of this, as my mother in law who had been staying with us was going home in the morning. Still, it was a loss. Meh. :)
