G21: Rangers drop game to Cubs, 5-1

This was the first of two split squad games today.  This one was started by Nick Tepesch, a guy getting a lot of notice this spring.    His line wasn’t great, but he went five innings.   He gave up three hits and a walk, and three earned runs.  One of the runs was a solo home run.   I didn’t see this game, so I can’t comment on what his pitching looked like.  The stories from people who were there said he was decent, but his line didn’t bear that out.  Will have to take their word for it.

Craig Gentry got a triple this game, something I hope to see from home a lot this year – that guy can FLY!    We had a scattered offense, nobody had more than one hit.    AJ had his third double of the season.  Still think the guy’s a jerk, but so far this spring, he’s doing well offensively.
