THE NEWBERG REPORT — MARCH 14, 2008
Over on the minor league side of the Surprise Recreation Campus yesterday, and 40 miles away on a similar portion of a baseball complex in Scottsdale, the Rangers’ farm clubs opened their exhibition schedule against squads from the San Francisco system.
In Surprise, the Clinton and Bakersfield pitching staffs shut the Giants out. In Scottsdale, the Frisco and Oklahoma pitching was nearly as effective.
In the four games, the Rangers’ minor league pitchers combined to strike out 29 San Francisco hitters, issuing just four walks.
