G26: Rangers beat Toronto, 8-1

Dave Burba pitched a complete game – Dave Burba?!? Of all our pitchers this season, Burba was the one I least expected to pitch a complete game. Not that I’m not happy about it mind you, just more surprised at seeing that. Was nice to see us get out and get another win – this now makes three straight series we’ve won, and with the Indians reeling pretty good, I’m hoping we can step into Cleveland on Friday and take another one there. With Seattle losing too, we’ve pulled into a respectable last place position of only 6.5 games out. :)
Anyway, there’s not much to say about this game except Burba was great, tossing only 104 pitches for the complete game, and our offense was good – with Arod getting another home run, and Raffy finally getting his 500th double – he really was hoofing it to get that one, too. :) Rusty Greer contuinues to play extremely well, going 4-5, scoring a couple of runs, and driving one in. This modified lineup that Narron has had out there the last couple of days has worked really well. Bill Haselman also had a few RBI’s himself, and has done really well the last week or so.
We’ll probably see Hector Ortiz catching tonight as Has needs a day off again.
