Texas Loses in Extras at Detroit

My prediction that Texas would unravel this month is starting to come to fruition. The Rangers are 0-2 in June after Texas closer Francisco Cordero blew his third save of the season by allowing two runs in the ninth to the Tigers. Cordero boosted his ERA to 3.97 in the process.

Texas manager Buck Showalter allowed starter Chris Young to go 7 1/3 but opted to bring in Cordero in the eighth. A testament to the Rangers lack of bullpen depth. Cordero recorded the final two outs in the eight before getting touched-up in the ninth.

That elite Ranger pen sealed their fate in the 10th when Nick Regillo (ERA 4.76) managed to get just one out before surrendering the game losing single to Craig Monroe.

Actually, it is spelled REGILIO...but the way this guy pitches you might as well spell it Regili-gone (as in, back to the minors).
