This is one of those games that has a simple explanation. Oh, I could write multiple hundreds of words about it, breaking down all the details, but it really is very simple. Carlos Villanueva for the Cubs was good. Alexi Ogando for the Rangers was not. Ogando allowed five earned runs in 2.1 innings. That was the game in a nutshell.
Our only two runs came on two solo home runs (Kinsler & Cruz). In fact, Kinsler & Cruz were our ENTIRE offense, as we had just four hits total. Both of them had two hits (the others being singles). Nobody else had any.
That’s it, folks!
