G8: Rangers now 2-6 after 4-2 win over A’s

Hey – a win! We’ve now got a whopping 2 wins for the season. Woo-hoo! Look out Yankees!
Seriously, it was nice to get a win, and we got good pitching, holding the A’s to only 6 hits and two runs. Their runs all came in the first inning, and we put up a nice string of goose eggs after that. One of the nice things about this game was Colby Lewis coming on and pitching 2.1 innings of damn awesome baseball, giving up only a single hit. Lewis looked good, as did Rocker who struck out the side in the 9th for a save.
Offensively, we didn’t murder the ball (didn’t expect to with who they had pitching), but we got just enough, including a home run by Rusty Greer, and an RBI single by Kevin Mench (his first ever). Carl Everett & Pudge drove in the rest.
Tomorrow’s a day game against Mark Mulder, that is never good to play against him.
