G42: Rangers take another close one, 8-7

I was out and about doing some shopping and visiting baseball card shops (I just started collecting cards again this year for the first time in about 20 years). I didn’t hear very much of the game at all, but I did manage to hear the top of the ninth while sitting in the parking lot in front of the Barnes & Noble in Dallas at the Northpark mall.
Was very cool to hear the call on the home run by Gonzalez. Was nice to see them pull out a late inning win – they hardly ever do that. Zimmerman didn’t pitch will, but shit.. It was his first bad outing. Perhaps the Ranger starting pitching disease is spreading. Hope not.
Commentary by Jim Meeks:
I only got to hear the 8th and 9th innings of today’s game (on RealAudio) as I had just gotten off work at that time.
What I heard was the Rangers pulling out a victory when trailing after 8 innings for only the 2nd time in 20 tries.
Juan Gonzalez belted a 3-run shot in the 9th inning to put the Rangers up for good.
Jeff Zimmerman had a rare, poor outing.
