For Rangers, a strong season, bitter finish
October 9, 2012
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Rangers manager Ron Washington wishes he gave his everyday players more rest during the season.
Four days after Texas was eliminated by Baltimore in the AL wild-card playoff, Washington said Tuesday he thinks his team would still be playing if it had been fresher.
After going to the last two World Series, Texas failed to win even one game this October. They lost 10 of their last 14 overall, including a sweep at Oakland to end the regular season.
Texas had seven players who appeared in at least 147 games. Third baseman Adrian Beltre was among five Rangers who played in at least 156 games.
