Thoughts on a 7-3 Rangers win

- That was fun.
- Oh, and long, because I was too tired to do this last night when the game ended.
- Kyle Cody got the start and gave up the first earned run of his major league career in the first inning, although with an asterisk…with a runner on first and one out, he struck out Mike Trout, and the throw down to second appeared to be in time to get Andrelton Simmons in a strike-em-out-throw-em-out double play. Rougned Odor couldn’t hold onto the ball, however, and Simmons was safe, and ended up scoring on an Anthony Rendon single.
- Cody got pulled after 55 pitches after walking the bases loaded with one out in the third inning. He was going to be limited to three innings anyway, and 55 pitches is close to the limit of what they want him throwing right now. The stuff looks good, though the command left him in the third inning.
- Jesse Chavez came in and got the final two outs of the third inning with no runs coming across, so good job, Jesse.
