G72: Rangers continute stinkfest, lose 9-5, lose boot too.

We made this a bit interesting late, but the game was nowhere near as close as the 9-5 score indicated. We were losing after the first pitch of the game, a home run to Craig Biggio, and that pretty much was it for the game. The Astros scored in innings 1-6, and we scored 4 in the 7th & 8th, but even with those, the game felt like it belonged to the Astros from the second Biggio hit the home run.
As usual, a team throws a kid making their major league debut against us, and he’s great. Rodrigo Rosario went 6 innings, giving up 2 runs (only 1 earned), and overall had us baffled. When we do that, the other team gets 7 runs in 3 innings and 80 pitches off our guy. Sigh. Any chance we can take this team down for a server upgrade and a reboot? It might do some good, as would my suggestion about putting in the horse.
Also, I don’t know if anyone noticed, but out in left field in this game from Sec 201 or 202 or so, someone had hung a white banner with nothing on it From where I was sitting, it really looked like someone was throwing in the towel – like it was a surrender flag. I called in to the post game show and asked them about it, they had a chuckle, but didn’t see it themselves. If anyone knows who hung that, have them email me, I’d love to talk to them. :)
