G89: Rangers sweep Blue Jays, 7-5

Well, I was at this game last night, and I have to say through seven innings, it was a real snoozer. We had a single run through those seven – up to that point, Batista was pretty dominating. In the eighth, he appeared to run out of gas. He walked a couple, and then aided by an error by Carlos Delgado, we pushed across two runs, until Mark Teixeira came up, and jacked the first pitch he saw into the Rangers bullpen with the bases loaded for the win.
Yeah, some other things happened this game, but the grand slam was really the only thing that I bet most people will remember from this one. Was a really quick, very thrilling end to what I thought was going to be a real bore of a game.
