G52: Rangers lose to Yankees, 7-6

Bombs away is about the only thing I can think of to describe this game. There was a total of 8 home runs for both teams (6 NY, 2 TEX). I actually thought we were going to cruise when we went up 4-0 in the third inning. But that didn’t last long.
Kenny Rogers continued his misery in Yankee Stadium – he’s got some ugly numbers there – real ugly. Today’s line was consistant with that (4IP, 8H, 6ER, 4BB, 5HR). Definitely his worst outing of the year. Kept him from getting to 9 wins.
Overall, a pretty pitching poor game on both sides. It was really nice to see Soriano get a nice round of applause when he stepped to the plate. That wasn’t a surprise. What was a MAJOR surprise was the standing ovation he got in Yankee stadium.
Brett Carre: This game sucked if you are a Rangers fan. We jumped off to a 4-0 lead on a 3-run shot by Alfonso, then Tex jacked a solo bomb to give us a 4-0 lead. Then the Yankees went into home run mode. They hit 5 off of Ranger starter Kenny Rogers. They took a 4-6, we battled back to tie it at 6-6, but Gary Sheffield broke the tie with a solo shot off of Jay Powell.
All in all a fun game to watch, just wish we were on the other end.
