ST6: Rangers lose again, 6-3 to Mariners

The Rangers record this spring drops to an abysmal 1-4-1 after another loss, this one a 6-3 game to the Seattle Mariners.
For the third game in a row, we hit double digits in hits, but still came up on the short side of the offensive stick. The offensive leader for Texas was a guy by the name of Ray Olmedo. Not a household name, and I’d bet some money he won’t be with the big club terribly long. But this game, he went 3-4 with a run scored. Again, we had little power. Of the 13 hits, 12 of them were singles. There was just one double (Chris Davis).
Speaking of Davis, he’s raking this spring. As I write this, I still have recaps for about six games after this one, and taking that into account, he’s got some gaudy numbers overall.
Our offense was spread out, despite there being 13 hits. Only Olmedo & Mitch Moreland had more than a single hit.
Piching wise, CJ Wilson made another start. Not too bad. Three innings. Had more earned runs than hits (2 vs 1). Only walked one, so the Mariners were highly efficient there in scoring, since both their runners against Wilson scored.
Neftali Feliz gave up four hits and four runs in his two innings of work. That’s not good.
The rest of our pen was scoreless over four innings. The entire staff walked just two this game, continuing a good trend this spring.
