Game 18- Rangers 3, Royals 2 (6-12)
Terrible Terrible Terrible Terrible. When you load the bases with no one out, you score a run. Down 3-2 in the 9th, if you only end up tying the game, that is a huge letdown. Basically, the only way you can lose that game is to do what the Royals did: grounder from Dejesus, grounder from Mork n Mendy= forceout, double play, ballgame. Loss. Another one.

I don't know how many more games there will be in which Grimmy and Leskanic don't give up a run... Good to see it was wasted. Only scoring 1 run in the 7th wasn't very fun either. Terrible Terrible Terrible. This is a team finding ways to lose. Decent game from the mound, no hitting... decent offensive night... pen will implode. Terrible Terrible Terrible.

The Rangers left an amazing 20 men on base in this game, so its a little decieving to say the pitchers did well. I'll grant you an "OK" but little else. Getting 6Ks in a game may be a season-high however, so I guess thats positive.

Until I hear otherwise, this one is on Tony P. In the 7th, or 9th, we needed to see Gonzalez. Bottom f---ing line. I know Mendy did it on opening day, but as I wrote last week, that homer may have done more harm than good.

This is a bad loss, and this team is in serious trouble.
