G66: Rangers break losing streak with 5-0 shutout win

Perhaps the solution to Matt Perisho is to put him in the rotation. Hmm.. If we can get this from him, and what we got from Ryan Glynn a week ago or so, our pitching would be much better off! This is a Matt Perisho I don’t think we’ve ever seen in the show at all.
Matt went six strong innings, giving up only two hits, while striking out 6, and walking three. An excellent outing for him – in fact, I’d wager he’d pitch more, but he hasn’t started at all this year, so his pitch count was a big deal, I’m sure. Crabby and Wetteland finished out the final three frames, allowing only one hit between the two of them, with two more K’s. An extremely well pitched game, the kind of game that makes the rest of the games look particularly annoying, as the pitching is there, we’re just not executing all the time.
On the other side of the coin, we had Pudge going 2 for 4, Rusty going 2 for 5, and Gabe Kapler going 3 for 5. Gabe’s got his average up about 35 points since coming back from the DL, Rusty’s is up, too, and Pudge continues to hover around 385 or so. Our hitting looks like it’s starting to come around (although Dave Martinez is now 0 for his last 18).
Overall, an excellent game – we needed a win.
