G83: Rangers totally dominate Indians; win 10-0

As this game went along, I was getting ready to make David Dellucci my star of the game. He went 3 for 4 with two home runs, a walk, 5 RBI’s and three runs scored. It was definitely a career day as Victor Rojas called it. But then it came down to Ricardo Rodriguez. RRod pitched a complete game shutout on just three hits. Thing is, as the game went along, I didn’t really notice how he was pitching until the 7th or 8th inning or so.
This game was dominated by us almost instantly with a leadoff home run by Michael Young (third leadoff this year, 12th overall). We had several home runs, including a disputed one by Kevin Mench. They were Mike Young, Kevin Mench, & David Dellucci twice. Nice power, nice pitching. And we’ll stay in first place.
All that remains now is Boston. And we’re missing Schilling & Pedro, so that’s a good sign. :)
