G7: Rangers lose close one, 2-1 to A’s

John Thomson looked like a pitcher that could win 20 games last night. Unfortunately, a pitcher that DID win 23 games last year was his opponent. Zito was masterful, his only mistake was a longball to Rafael Palmeiro. It’s our lot. Whenever we get a great pitching performance, we always seem to get outpitched by someone better.
We had a total of 5 hits (two of them by Mike Young, our “weak” offensive second baseman). Overall, it was a great BASEBALL game, but not a great Rangers game. :(
Of course, anything’s better than what Chan Ho Park has been doing. :)
