G88: Rangers beat the Big Unit, 6-5

I didn’t think we had a prayer against Randy Johnson – but Matt Perisho pitched well enough to keep the game from getting out of hand. We actually managed to come back and tie the game against Randy Johnson. The Rangers have always hit him at the very least OK, if not great.
Pretty strange lineup against the Big Unit. What surprised me is that Haselman had two RBI hits off of Randy – that was impressive for a guy who doesn’t play a lot. I hope that Bill stays after this year. I know he deserves to have a great front line job, but I think he’s the absolute best backup we could get for Pudge.
That’s another game when Luis Alicea makes a great comeback come true with a late inning hit and RBI. I wonder if we’ll consider signing him again next year. Be curious to see what happens there.
