(73-55) Rangers blown away in shameful display.

Looking a little frustrated on the mound
It was a game to forget as the Rangers fell 10-0 to the White Sox on the south side of Chicago. Derek Holland had the start for the Rangers and showed his inconsistencies and inability to avoid the big inning, as he didn't make it out of the 4th after giving up 5 Earned on 8 hits and 2 walks. Scott Feldman came in the game in long relief and pitched the remainder of the game, giving up another 5 earned on 8 hits and 1 walk. On parallel with the disgraceful pitching performance was the equally disappointing offense (or lack there of). The Rangers could only muster 4 hits and 2 walks, an extremely uncharacteristic showing for the leagues best offense. Lets give some credit to Gavin Floyd on the mound for the Sox who managed to blank the Rangers through 7 innings. The Rangers start all over against the Red Sox today at home with C.J. Wilson (12-5, 3.20 ERA) taking the mound for the Rangers against Eric Bedard (4-8, 3.44 ERA)
First Pitch is at 7:05 CST.
