In Surprise, Ariz, closer RHP Joe Nathan allowed three hits and a walk in the sixth inning and coughed up a lead Monday as the Rangers lost for the seventh time in their last nine games. At 4-12-1, the Rangers are last in the not-so-important Cactus League standings.

Using what could be the opening day lineup for the first time this spring, the Rangers scored twice in the first inning, but managed just one run and eight hits for the rest of the game.
