G77: Rangers break out big, beat Mariners 13-3

It’s about time we busted out like this – and it happened at a good time, too! This is the first time we’ve won three in a row since June 5th!
Our most consistent pitcher of the year, Kenny Rogers was on the hill, and looked fairly decent, if not totally overpowering. He went 7 innings, and gave up only 3 earned runs – a “Quality Start”. One of our most inconsistent pitchers took over for him (Crabtree), and threw two scoreless innings, giving up only a single hit. My gut feeling is that it won’t last. I’ve kind of lost faith in Crabtree this season – so much so, I dropped him from the couple of fantasy teams of mine I had him on.
Raffy really looks like he’s coming out of his funk – he went 3 for 5 tonight, driving in two, and scoring three himself. Offense was the name of this game, as we scored 13 for the first time in awhile. Rusty was 2 for 5, and has raised his average 80 points in the couple of weeks since he’s come off the DL. Chad Curtis was 3 for 4.. I could go on. Was a great night for the offense.
However, my gut feeling says it won’t last.
