G28: Rangers win 6-1 over Drays

No commentary from me, as I was really tired and fell asleep watching the game, of all things. :)

Brett Carre: Things get back on track after a nice 6-1 win over the Rays last night. This game was typical Rangers ball for this year. Solid pitching, timely hitting, and a shot or two of Hank’s Homies.

Ryan Drese continues to impress me. He got the win going 6.1 innings, no runs, 2 walks, and 4 k’s. His ERA is on 2.25. This from a guy who couldn’t get Rangers Captain out last year. As usual, the pen had a solid night. I have just one compliant and I think Joe already touched on this, why in the hell is Doug Brocail on the team? I don’t understand. Let’s watch for this now, if we stay in the race in July and August will Hicks and Hart start dealing prospects for a 3 month rental. Let’s just keep an eye on that.

The bats awoke tonight with Mike Young being the star. Young went 4-4 with a homer, a triple and two singles. Can you say All-star?

Another series win, that brings us to 18-10, but the stupid rally monkeys won again, so we are still tied for first. Want some garlic fries??
