Ahhhh, much better boys. I like when you are conistent. It makes me a much happier person. It makes me much happier when you win and I have to write on the game. It’s so much easier to talk about things you did well!
Yu Darvish took the mound today trying to bounce back from his slump…And bounce back he did. Darvish pitched 6 and 2/3 innings, giving up 6 hits, 3 runs and struckout 8. Not a bad day Yu…I think it all had to do with his haircut. Yup, that’s it. No matter what the reason is, I like it.
The boys got on the board early when Josh Hamilton bombed one out of the park off Porcello in the bottom of the first inning. I think it’s pretty safe to say that Hamilton has found his swing again. He’s not swinging at junk, he’s being patient and he’s seeing the ball well. Thank God! I was starting to get a little frustrated with him.
The Rangers put up 3 in the third, 1 in the fourth and 2 in the 7th on wild pitches. Yup, that happened. The Tigers reliever Villareal decided he couldn’t play catch anymore and beat the hell out of Avila behind the plate. Andrus and Hamilton scored. It was kind of funny to watch. I’m just glad it worked out in the Rangers’ favor and not the other way around.
It was a good day all around. The Rangers pulled out a series win over the Tigers, the Angels and the A’s lost today, and I booked my vacation!
Tomorrow the Rangers head up to the Bronx to take on the Yankees. Let’s go boys!
FINAL: Rangers 8, Tigers 3
