Thursday Morning ChangeupsSWEEP SWEEP SWEEP!

The Rangers finished off the sweep of the Boston Red Sox on the road last night with a 6-3 win.  Derek Holland pitched through a two run homer in the second inning and blanked the Red Sox the rest of the way. The Rangers offense continued to rake as it seems that Mike Napoli is getting his timing back as he hit his fourth home run in three games. Youk is feeling Nap’s presence.

“The guy seems like he hits .700 against us lifetime,” Youkilis said.

Ron Washington was impressed with the Rangers starters.

“They’ve been outstanding, They worked hard in spring training to do what they’re doing. We’re playing good baseball and we’re doing it in different ways.”

Quick Hits

  • The Rangers start a four game series with a tough Detroit team tonight on the road. It will be Yu Darvish vs Adam Wilk
  • Sources are indicating that Pudge Rodriguez will retire as a Texas Ranger on Monday at the Ballpark in Arlington. More on this because Pudge is worth way more than a quick hit.
  • Michael Young sat out yesterdays game again with a stiff back. Ron Washington says it’s no big deal and he should be in the lineup tonight.

  1. Napoli’s batting line against the BoSox – .302/.383/.716 for a 1.099 OPS.

    Highest for Napoli against any opposing team in which he has more than 100 PAs.

    Lower that threshold to 50 PAs and Nap Nap dominates the Angels to the tune of .356/.433/.763 for a 1.196 OPS.

    Bring it CJ!
