G92: Rob Bell pitches Rangers past Giants, 2-0

What else can you say about this one? Hello Rob Bell!
Rob comes within a single pitch of getting the first complete game shutout by a Rangers starter in a long long time. Jerry Narron pulled Bell after 8.2 innings for Zimmerman. I would have loved to have him stay in there (as would everyone else at the park by the booing), but ultimately, we got the win, the shutout, and Bell was masterful!
Allowing only 6 hits over 8.2 innings, Rob Bell was awesome! About the only negative thing you could say was that he walked five batters (three of which were Bonds), but it didn’t seem to hurt him at all. At the moment, Melvin looks like a genius again, trading away Ruben Mateo, and getting a good, decent young pitcher in return. He must have worn out his welcome with the Reds, because the way he looked last night, I can’t imagine why they’d trade him away.
Anyway, it was great! Really hope he can keep this up, now that he’s had two great starts in a row.
