Stupid Baserunning + Lousy Pitching = Another Texas Loss: Rangers 9, Angels 7
About the only thing worse to see was Torii Hunter wincing during his at-bat in the top of the ninth; he appeared to be clutching at his belt, which could be a really serious sports hernia of some kind. Let's hope it isn't.
Vlad must never attempt to steal a base this season, again. I didn't see Chone Figgins leadoff auto-erasure to lead off the ninth, trying to stretch a double into a triple, but from the radio call, it sounded like a really stupid maneuver.
