Rangers are outhit 20-7 in loss to Tigers

Cleveland is not Detroit.  That's for sure.  Because the Rangers swept Cleveland in four games, and I'll be overjoyed if they can escape a sweep by Detroit.

Matt Harrison took the mound with kidney stones tonight.  I don't know how he went out there, but I was hoping, if he said he could pitch, that he would prove he could.  But he didn't.  He only lasted four innings out there (which is four innings longer than I would last with kidney stones, but still).  In that time, he gave up four runs on eight hits and three walks.  

Dave Bush took over and proceeded to give up two runs on six hits in 2.1 innings.  Mark Lowe kept the scoring going, by allowing one run on four hits in 1.2 innings of work.   Apparently Yoshinori Tateyama is the low man on the totem pole.  He got to come in to a 7-1 game in the 9th.  He allowed a run too, but at this point, did it really matter?

The Rangers, as noted above, scored one run.  One.  Ian Kinsler crossed home in the 6th on a Josh Hamilton fielder's choice.  And that was it.  But at least Kinsler is getting on base ... and hitting, right?  He had two hits tonight and David Murphy had three, but it didn't really do much good.

This series has been so deflating.


KISS: Kinsler, I guess.  He was on base three times -- two singles and a walk -- and scored the Rangers' only run.

MISS: The pitching.  All of it.
