G81: Rangers shutout on July 4th game, 6-0

I was at the Ballpark for this game – and quite frankly, the best thing was the fireworks show. The Rangers were dead all night. Mike Morgan gave up four runs in the first, mostly on a three run home run to Edgar Martinez, and that’s all that was needed.
The Rangers had six hits, scattered over 9 innings, and didn’t have any kind of offense until two outs in the ninth, when we had loaded the bases (of which one was a walk, and one was a hbp), but John Halama was just too much – he had his first ever shutout, and he pitched a complete game. Todd Zeile did extend his hitting streak to 12.
Again, a really great fireworks show out at the Ballpark – I’ve seen all three this year so far, and probably will go to the one towards the end of the season.
