G77: Rangers lose first game of series to Astros, 7-5

I hate games like this. These are emotional rollercoasters. You get the high of coming back to tie the game, and the BIG low of giving it right back and losing the game. I’m writing this on Monday, so most of the details aren’t fresh in my mind, but this was supposed to be rematch of the pitcher’s duel from Arlington last weekend between Roy Oswalt and Ryan Drese. It wasn’t. Oswalt gave up 9 hits and 5 runs. Drese gave up 8 hits and five runs. Neither was really crisp at all. Drese at least got a ND in the game.
Oh well, the Lone Star series is now tied after we won 2 the last weekend.
