I'm not quite sure which was more deflating, losing all three games in Detroit or getting blown away by the Yankees in the first game of an important series. Phil Hughes made short work of the Rangers, shutting them out for 8 innings with only 101 pitches. This game was the perfect example of where the Rangers' season could go horribly wrong. Starting pitching gives up a big lead early and the offense is forced to hack at bad pitches in an attempt to catch up. It's a good thing the Houston series allowed the team to salvage the roadtrip. Let's just hope they can turn things around against the Yankees.
