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.
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.
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.
Chris Denorfia hit the first of his two home runs in the 5th. He's an Italianimal.
Andrew Cashner replaced Tyson Ross to strike out one batter, then took it to the house. Good day of work.
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!
