G100: Rangers win blowout, 12-2; have good and bad news

This game had a lot to enjoy. First and foremost, it was my Friday night once a week TV game.
Second, Nelson Cruz had a hell of a night. Eight RBI’s, including a three run home run. He went 4-4.
Omar Quintanilla made his Rangers debut.
Rangers scored twelve runs on thirteen hits, including three doubles.
Rangers had four multi run innings. A two run second. A three run fourth. A three run fifth, and a four run sixth.
But the biggest down side of this game was that we lost Adrian Beltre. In the bottom of the fith, Beltre was headed towards third, and limped in, doing the often seen, but never wanted “I pulled my hamstring hop”, followed almost immediately by the even less desirable grab of the back of the leg. That’s a huge blow. While it doesn’t seem like he’ll be out for the rest of the season, he certainly will be out for awhile.
It will allow for Chris Davis to come up, as to whether or not he plays third base during all this time is unknown.
While it was a great game to enjoy for all the positive, the Beltre injury is definitely brings a huge downer to the game’s events.
As a final note, the Blue Jays designated for assignment the starter from this game, Jo-Jo Reyes the next morning.
