Rangers grade out better than the Angels…Class Dismissed

On May 13th, 2012, the Texas Rangers are better than the Angels in every category. They resoundingly proved that point this weekend.

It can be argued that the Angels have a few individual players that are better than the Rangers, but as a team they are not even close.

The Rangers put a nail into the Angels coffin in front of the national ESPN audience, pounding their best pitcher. Jered Weaver didn’t even make it out of the 4th inning before giving up 8 earned runs, including a grand slam to Nelson Cruz.

On a good note, Weaver did strike out Josh Hamilton twice, before the all-everything Ranger sent him to the showers with a blistering 2-run double.

Positives. The Angels did pound out 6 runs, but double that and the Halos still would have lost. They also had 12 hits, including multiple hits games for Trout, Trumbo, Wells and Wilson.

Looking at the 13-6 final score, it’s hard to believe that the Angels once led 2-1. Trumbo’s home run giving the Halos a short-lived lead.

That’s about it. Home runs by Wells and Morales mean nothing when the team is down by 10-2 and 13-5 respectively.

So now the Angels can lick their wounds as they head home for a short series against the A’s and White Sox.

The last place Angels are back to being 8 back of the Rangers.

When are they supposed to get their game together?
