Rangers/Jays Game 1 Live Blog

7:05- Got back just in time to see Marco Scutaro single up the middle.

7:06- And there's an Aaron Hill double. And another misplayed ball in left field. Where are the Angels in the Outfield when you need em? 1-0 Jays.

7:10- As Holland works around trouble, I'd like to give a shout out to the guys at Inside Corner. It's a great blog for all DFW sports. Essentially if my blog becomes 1/8 as good as that, I'll be very satisfied.

7:14- Holland does not have his best stuff. Two walks and a three run shot from ROOOOODDDDDDDDDDDDDD BARAJAS. Sorry That's a fun name to say.

7:17- Great start guys! 5-0 after top half of the first.

7:21- Rangers play trackball (my roommates favorite game) as Kinsler and Hammy both attempt to go oppo and come out a few feet short. Young also smoked a ball...right at Hill. So a 1-2-3 inning but an optimist says we hit the ball hard at least. I'm not one of those people: this game is over!

7:22- That Time Warner commercial with the ref throwing penalty flags cracks me up every time.

7:26- Michael makes his 2nd error in his last 55 games. Translation: awful player.

7:35- Toronto is treating the Texas hitters like Officer Barbrady from South Park: "Move along people, there's nothing to see here." Another 1-2-3 inning. Man 5 runs feels like 30.

7:38- ANOTHER misplayed ball in left. This time though, Murphy really couldn't do much. It bounced off the lip of the left field wall where it bends for the scoreboard. Still, left field is the unluckiest place to play if you're a Ranger.

7:52- Andrus broke up the no-hitter. Thanks Heavens. Now the only point of interest I had in this game right now has vanished.

8:05- Adam Lind just belted a salami to left field. Holland done without recording an out in the 4th. Want to cry a little more? Here's his line: 10 R 7 H 3 BB 1 HBP 1 K 2 HRs. Yewwwwouch.

8:09- I think this will be a great time to break for dinner. Rangers down 10-0, yes 10-0, in the top of the 4th...yes the top of the 4th.

8:36- It's 11-0 in the bottom of the fifth somehow, and the Rice of Passage is throwing in the towel. I have class tomorrow! More on this miserable, miserable, loss for the post game.
