G86: Rangers win Sunday afternoon against Pads, 4-3

A nice Saturday afternoon win, although I watched most of the game in the evening, thanks to my TiVo. :)
It was nice to see Andres Galarraga & Gabe Kapler come through with pinch hit RBI’s – both are in a major slump – the 40 year old now bench warmer is probably in his final days with the Rangers. I’d like for him to gracefully retire. I like the guy, I really like the guy, but it doesn’t seem like he has any gas left in the tank. I’d like to see him retire, so we can have some great going away stuff for him.
Anyway, this game was one I thought was going to slip away until the aforementioned pinch hits. Nice to see that, but we also got a decent pitching performance by Doug Davis, who continues to pitch well. Our bullpen gave up nothing in the final three frames. Actually, I thought we were going to get destroyed by Bobby Jones, but he fell apart in the seventh, giving us our lead and the win.
Nice game to come back from – and apart from the 3 spot given up in the second inning, our pitching was pretty damn good!
