G42: Rangers lose walk fest, 4-3 to White Sox

Thirteen walks issued this game. Seven by White Sox pitchers, six by the Rangers staff. In both cases, there were more walks than hits. Rangers were given seven walks, and got just five hits. Sox were given six walks, and got four hits. Sloppy game, by the looks of the box score.
In a game when Endy Chavez had the biggest offensive day (2-4 with a run scored), that’s about the big summary.
Actually, the big deal of this game is that the Sox got a three run home run off of Matt Harrison in the fifth to tie up the game at that point. Rangers were up 3-0 until that moment.
Bah.
Harrison still had a quality start, as he went seven innings, and gave up just the three runs. So overall he had an OK outing. But the home run was deflating, for sure.
Bah.
