TheTexas Rangers lined up at Wrigley Field to try and complete the sweep of a two-game series against the Chicago Cubs on Thursday.  The Cubs pitchers were having none of it though, taking down the Rangers 6-2.

Chicago starter, Carlos Villanueva (1-0), went seven innings while only giving up two runs on four hits.  The Rangers pitching staff did not have as much success.  Alexi Ogando (2-1) started for Texas but the start was short lived in that Ogando only lasted 2.1 innings while giving up five runs on six hits.

The bats also struggled as the only production came from Ian Kinsler and Nelson Cruz.  Both had solo home runs which would be the only runs scored by the Rangers.

Texas looks to get back in the win column as they start a three-game series in Arlington against the Seattle Mariners starting Friday.  That game is scheduled to start at 7:05 pm.
