G57: Rangers lose again to Braves, 5-2

Sigh. Actually, I thought all I was going to write was Greg Maddux’ name. He was absolutely dominating until the 7th inning when he became a bit human and gave up two runs (almost three, but Juan was thrown out at the plate on a nice play by the Braves D). Maddux needed something like 48 pitches to get through 6 innings – rather amazing in this day and age.
John Thomson was – well, John Thomson. He wasn’t horrible, but he wasn’t great, either. And with Maddux on the other side, giving up the runs we did was too many, unfortunately.
