This game started off as an awesome pitcher’s duel – until the top of the 7th. I thought Matt Perisho, despite some walks in the first, pitched an awesome game. Then came the Rangers’ 2000 problem, the shaky bullpen. Gave up 7 in the 7th, and that was about it.
At this point, since we were so behind, I fell asleep during the game, as I was watching it timeshifted on my TiVo (I was out for the evening, and didn’t start watching until about midnight).
If we lose 2 of 3 or get swept by the A’s, that’s probably about it for this season.
G79: Rangers make me sigh again by losing 11-4
