G59: Rangers lose to Colorado 3-2. COLORADO?

Well, this was an interesting game for several reasons. It was a very low scoring game at Coors Field. Both of our teams have a habit of scoring a lot of runs, and it didn’t happen tonight.
Although I felt it was going to be a big scoring game, as Raffy hit a home run in teh first, giving out a good vibe about the game. Unfortunately, that was all I saw of the Rangers scoring. I’m still getting over what had me in the hospital a week ago, so the medication I’m on put me to sleep during the late night game. When I went to sleep, we were heading to extra innings and it was tied.
Unfortunately, John Wetteland blew a save, which broke a big string of his. Kenny Rogers pitched really really well tonight I thought. It was a shame we couldn’t get him any runs – which seems to be his lot this season – he’s 2000’s “no run support” pitcher.
Gabe Kapler returned to the lineup and went 2 for 6 in his first game back – and other than a bad throw missing the cutoff man, he didn’t look all that bad to me.
We also traded for veteran Dave Martinez today – he’ll start tomorrow night – meaning we’ll have to designate someone for assignment.
