ST17: Rangers take Dodgers 5-4 on Monday

The Dodgers threw starter John Ely out there on this game, and in the first inning, he looked quite good. That was about it, though. I was actually ready to write a Dodger fan I know and praise Ely. Then he wasn’t nearly as good after the first inning. :)
The Rangers first run came in the second after David Murphy doubled in Nelson Cruz.
We put up a three spot in the third when Ian Kinsler doubled, Elvis Andrus reached on a fielding error, and then Josh Hamilton popped his first home run of the spring. A huge shot that went over the right field bullpen. Looked pretty big on TV, that’s for sure!
We added our final run in the in seventh when we had a single, walk, single group of guys.
Our pitching was “eh”. Feliz started the game on a day when we got the latest flip/flop about closer/starter with him. He went four innings, gave up three hits and a run and a walk. Not bad. Eric Hurley wasn’t too bad, either. He also went four innings, giving up four hits and a run (no walks). However, we tried to give it back with the guy we ran out in the 9th, Miguel De Los Santos. He only went one inning, but gave up the Dodgers 3rd & 4th runs in the 9th inning. He got out of it, but was pretty wobbly looking, despite his line not being THAT awful on pure numbers.
De Los Santos was sent to the minor league camp after that.
