G47: Rangers beat Tampa Bay 6-4

After never having accomplished the feat in the first 26 years of the team’s existance, the Rangers pulled it off for the third time in less than a year, having done the back-to-back-to-back home run thing. :) This time it was Juan, Raffy, & Pudge. Only earlier in the week, it was three other guys, one of which being Pudge, and last year when it was done for the first time, Pudge was also involved (with Juan & Will Clark).
We started this game with a 5 run first inning (similar to the game against the Yankees with Roger Clemens). It was enough to hold on for the win – we didn’t need any more, but we did get one more later on in the game in the 7th inning.
Aaron Sele pitched well, but spectacurly. He lasted into the 7th inning, giving up four runs. Was OK, but he is improving – it seems that our entire staff is coming around. Which is nice. With the kids coming up doing a great job, it’s nice to see our established pitching getting it together. I’d love to put some distance between us and the rest of the division as we approach the 50th game of the season.
Kinda tired – not going to write much about this one. :)
