By Richard Durrett

SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Before the start of today's Cactus League affair with the Kansas City Royals, the Texas Rangers put together a quick intrasquad game with mostly minor leaguers on Nolan Ryan Field.

Martin Perez: 2 IP, 2 H (24 pitches, 15 strikes)
Neil Ramirez: 2 IP, 3 H, 2 R/ER, 1 BB, 1 K (28 pitches, 16 strikes)
Wilmer Font: 1 IP (15 pitches, 9 strikes)

The hitters in the game were:

Chris Robinson
Yangervis Solarte
Kyle Hudson
Leonys Martin
