Rangers beat Padres 5-2 in Alamodome

And just like that the pre-season is over.

Isn't it weird how excited we get for Spring Training and then how tired of it we become after just 50 days? Well now it's over and the regular season is upon us. It just took a Texas ass kicking by the Rangers to make it happen.

1st Inning

Jason Marquis started the game and sucked hard. He walked the first 3 Rangers' batters to load the bases.Seizing the opportunity Jeff Baker scalded a single to right field. Two scored. Mercifully the next batter roped a ball right at Everth Cabrera for the first out. Then Marquis walked another before the inning finally ended.

2-0 Rangers

4th Inning

Marquis settled down for a few innings, retiring batters in order. In the 4th, more walks led to more runs. He walked 2 in a row, just in time for Leury Garcia to homer to right field.

5-0 Rangers

5th inning

Chris Denorfia hit the first of his two home runs in the 5th. He's an Italianimal.

5-1 Rangers

6th Inning

Andrew Cashner replaced Tyson Ross to strike out one batter, then took it to the house. Good day of work.

8th Inning

Chris Denorfia homered again to right field. This is why he's everyone's favorite player.

Final: 5-2 Rangers

Bring on the regular season!
