Scott Feldman immediately took the mound out of the bullpen and started the game for the Rangers. I think they call that a “spot start”. Robbie Ross relieved the red beard after 3 innings and pitched a perfect 2.2 innings to pick up the win against the Yankees 7 – 3.
And the Rangers offensive was at it again – Beltre, Kinsler, Nap Nap, Elvis, Moreland and Young!
Adrian Beltre started it off with a solo shot early and he ended up going 3 for 5 while knocking in 3. And Kinsler too, at it again. He ended up 3 for 5 with 2 runs scored.
Mike Napoli and Mitch Moreland both left the yard, and I’m not talking about leaving the yard to go home after the game, I’m talking about home runs! Mike Young and Elvis contributed with an RBI each. And the Rangers put away the Yanks for the 2nd straight night to take the series victory, their 6th straight series win.
Let’s hope the Rangers can keep up the good work against the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday. Big Matt Harrison will be taking the mound against James Shields. Game time is 7:05 pm central.
T’s Game Notes / Observations:
- The Rangers rocked the blue tops, blue caps, and white pants. I’m more of an all white fan myself, but I’ll take it.
- Derek Jeter led off the game with a single, and then another. He’s on fire.
- Josh Hamilton made a heck of a play in center, sliding on his ass for the catch and then doubling Mark Teixiera off at first.
- The big boy in centerfield caught another home run. Who is this mysterious kid?
- Beltre’s home run was estimated at 441 feet.
- The Rangers have won 6 straight series. Boom!
- Robbie Ross leads the American League in wins.
