We could get all analytical and break down some of the key stats from a weekend series with the Texas Rangers but let’s just be completely honest and call it was it is, a Texas ass-whoopin. The Rangers absolutely abused the Blue Jays pitching staff all series long and the Jays are leaving with their tails between their legs.
Jays swept by the Rangers and the record now stands at 24-24.
Quick recap and boxscores:
Game 1 – Rangers 14, Blue Jays 3 – Nelson Cruz has 8 RBIs, Brandon Morrow doesn’t last through the first inning.
Game 2 – Rangers 8, Blue Jays 7 – A late inning comeback is all for not as the Jays pen coughs up an extra inning lead.
Game 3 – Rangers 12, Blue Jays 6 – Kyle Drabek gives up 9 earned runs.
