(73-54) Ian Kinsler's bat comes alive but can't hold off the White Sox

Ian Kinsler's 2 solo home runs (#'s 19 & 20 on the year) where all the offense the rangers could mount tonight at U.S. Cellular Field, home of the Chicago White Sox. Alexi Ogando threw 7.0 Solid innings, only allowing 2 runs on 6 hits, but Chicago's John Danks, a former Texas Ranger star prospect, pitched equally well, giving up only 2 runs, both coming by way of Ian Kinsler. Koji Uehara came on for the Rangers in relief and gave up the go ahead run in the 8th, and the Rangers couldn't claw their way back. Sergio Santos closed the door on the Rangers, earning his 26th save on the season for Chicago.
The game three rubber match of the series begins tomorrow at 1:10 P.M. CST with Derek Holland (TEX) Facing off against Gavin Floyd (CWS).
Here's Hoping.


  1. I'm a fan of the Rangers too. Hope you keep the reporting pace, will follow you regularly.

  2. I'm not much of a baseball fan but very nice blog and write-ups of games.
