G145: Rangers lose to Mariners, 3-1

I started watching this game, but Wednesday is my bowling league night, and then I had to watch the season premiere of Enterprise last night, so by the time I started watching this, it was already pretty late, so I started zipping through it with my TiVo. The power outage in the fourth inning was fairly funny at least in the reactions and discussions of Josh & Tom to it.
I didn’t miss much, except a frustrating loss. Thomson pitched well, giving up just 3 runs in 6.2 innings. However, Joel Piniero was better (which figures since he’s been bad lately), giving up just one run on a complete game win. The one run was to Mr. Safeco, Raffy, who hit another home run here.
Interesting rumours the last few days that the Mariners might sign Raffy if Edgar retires after this season. I’d like to keep Raffy, but for Raffy’s stats, I see a move to Safeco being pretty good for him.

G144: Rangers beat Mariners, 5-4

I didn’t watch a lot of this game as I was feeling bad today, I fell asleep early, and did wake up in time to see Raffy’s home run, but that’s almost all I saw, as I went to bed right after that. Game notes are here.

G140: Rangers lose to Royals, 3-1

Well, this game started out with a great feeling. A leadoff home run, and some great pitching by John Thomson (perfect through 3+). But that’s about as far as it got. We never got any more runs, and while Thomson was pretty good, we didn’t get anything off the pitcher we were supposed to get in a trade with KC for Juan Gonzalez.
Darnit. The Angels lost, too – we missed a chance to pick up ground. Game notes are here.
