Series at a glance:
Offense quiet in loss
The Rangers got to Kelvim Escobar early, notching two hits and a run in their first three batters, but after that, the offense was stifled to only one hit in the next six innings. Robinson Tejeda allowed four runs in 5 1/3 innings. Michael Young tallied one of the Rangers' two RBIs.
