With milestone win No. 100 still waiting in the wings, Ervin Santana allowed eight runs to send the Halos to their second consecutive pounding at the hands of the Rangers. Kendry Morales, Mark Teixeira and Matthew Brown each added an RBI to the mix, but the offense couldn't come up with much else in the drubbing.
