G160: Rangers lose to A’s, 3-2

Three games to go. All against the A’s. The A’s are .5 games behind the Yankees for best overall record in the AL, and homefield advantage. Do I want the Rangers to win any of these games and help the Yankees? Hell no! I want us to lose all three of these, and give the Yankees a big pfffft. Of course, I’d like to see Arod hit his three home runs to get to 60, but he didn’t get any tonight, so he needs three in the last two games. Unlikely, but you never know.
Overall, this was a pitching game again. Chan Ho Park was sloppy in the first, giving up two runs, but that was it, really. While he did give up one more run later on, he was pretty good after the first inning. Mark Mulder on the other hand, gave up nothing. He went 7 innings, giving up only 3 hits. We didn’t score anything until we made it very interesting in the bottom of the 9th, putting two runs up on the board. I was actually scared we’d win! :)
Two more to go.
