G35: Bullpen blows it for Kenny; Rangers lose 6-5

(I’m not going to be writing much about this game, as it was a casualty of me being out of touch for awhile due to a business trip).
An interesting pitching matchup – two pitchers who have pitched a perfect game going after each other – Kenny Rogers & David Wells. Both pitchers gave up 5 earned runs, Kenny going 7 innings, David going 9. The game went into extra innings, and unfortunately, Mike Venafro gave up a gopher ball to a guy who doesn’t hit a lot of home runs – Jose Valentin.
Overall another decently pitched game by Kenny Rogers, unfortunately it was wasted due to the bullpen giving it away. Oh well.
