Texas Rangers Defeat San Diego Padres To Finish Cactus League Play

If you were getting a little sick of Grapefruit and Cactus League play, don't worry, you're not alone. Luckily for baseball fans, both the Grapefruit and Cactus Leagues are now over for 2012. On Sunday night, the Rangers played their final Cactus League game of the season, defeating the San Diego Padres 5-3.

Colby Lewis made the start for Texas in his final tuneup for Opening Day. Lewis pitched four innings, giving up two runs on five hits and a walk while striking out four. Lewis did allow a home run to Jesus Guzman.

The better end of Texas' bullpen got work in as well. Scott Feldman, Robbie Ross, Mark Lowe, Alexi Ogando and Joe Nathan all pitched an inning. Nathan's appearance, and success, is the most noteworthy of the relievers. Nathan hasn't been having a good spring, giving up eight runs in seven innings, but didn't allow a baserunner and struck out one in Sunday's win over San Diego.
