G19: Rangers sweep Mariners behind big game, 14-6

WOW! Yesterday, I thought about having just WOW as my commentary. Today I’m doing it. There’s just TOO much to write about. Go read the wire stories, and the box score below. It’s just a sight to behold. My words wouldn’t even begin to do it justice.

Although I thought Mench should have tried for the double. ;)

Oh, and here’s a link to the last time the Rangers went back to back to back in HR’s. I was doing this website when that happened.
