G151: Rangers drop game to Twinkies, 3-1

No real commentary here either – I was watching Monday Night Football. I checked in during the Ranger game from time to time, but there wasn’t much going on.
Rick Helling was the hard luck loser in a game that really was the Joe Mays show. We got shut down 3-1 by the Twins, who have surprisingly had our number this year. After beating the Twins every single game in 1999, it certainly feels like it’s a complete opposite this year.
Gabe Kapler continues to hit the ball well, going 2 for 3 and a walk. His average is now .306. I really hope he keeps it together at the start of next year. I’ve seen too many players figure it all out, get good at the end of the season, only to totally lose themselves the start of the next year.
