G35: Tigers dominated by Kenny Rogers; Rangers win 2-0

Boy, what an awesome game! I actually felt bad for the Tigers starting pitcher. Both he and Kenny Rogers went the first 7 innings before giving up any runs at all. In fact, Kenny went eight and gave up nothing. Jeff Weaver got in a little bit of trouble in the 8th inning and gave up two runs. I’d say 5 hits and two runs over eight innings is an awesome start, but Weaver got the loss because Kenny (& Hideki Irabu) were just that much better.
Ranger pitching allowed only eight scattered hits through nine innings, and no runs at all. I really wish I would have been there for this game, as it was not the kind of pitching performance you get in the AL all that often!
Not much more to say about this one – it was all Kenny Rogers! :)
