G96: Rangers lose ugly and great game to Rays, 2-1

What an ugly, ugly game. What a great, great game.
I was watching this and was utterly shocked that Darren Oliver was perfect through 5+ innings. I actually started to think that he might pitch something special, and then he lost perfect, no hit, & shutout all at once with a solo home run given up in the 6th. He also gave up another solo home run later on, but pitched an 8 inning complete game, losing 2-1. Darren gave up only three hits the whole game, but unfortunately, two were solo home runs.
And, the Rays shut us down even more, allowing only a single Ranger run. I felt really really bad for Darren Oliver. This kind of pitching may have increased his stock for a trade. I wouldn’t mind trading away that moeny, and giving some of it to Pudge, as the papers this morning are starting to sound ugly about the possibility of Pudge being out of here.
Again, a very annoying loss, but a great great baseball game.
