G53: Rangers beat Yankees, 8-1

When I saw the pitching matchups for the New York series, I figured this would be the game we’d lose automatically. Rookie making his Yankee Stadium debut against one of the most powerful lineups in baseball. Dominguez hasn’t exactly set the world on fire since he’s been up. Boy was I wrong. Not only was this the only game we ended up winning in the series, but it was an absolutely dominating performance by Juan Dominguez. He went 8 innings, giving up just one run on 5 hits. He also struck out five, and just had the Yankees baffled. It was absolutely amazing to watch.
On the other side, Brad Fullmer busted out of his malaise with a 3 for 4 day. He also scored four times, he had a HR, 2 RBI’s, and a walk. Thing is, after all that, his batting average is only .219. As exciting as this game was for him, he needs a LOT of these to bring himself back to respectability. I hope he does, I really like him, but so far this season, he’s been a bust.
Brett Carre: A nice ass kicking of the evil empire today with a 8-1 win. Every win @ Ny is sweet, but we dominated today.
Juan Dominguez was brilliant. He gave up 1 run over 8 innings going up against the best line-up in baseball. Hopefully that was not a fluke. We could really use him this year.
Brad Fuller led a Ranger offensive charge with 3 hits and 4 runs scored. Tex added a mammoth homer in the upper deck and we sprinkled a few runs here and there for the 8-1 win.
