G150: Rangers beat A’s, 9-4

As I write this, it’s 5:30PM and I realized I totally forgot about today’s update. I have to leave in 10 minutes, so I have just enough time to slap together an update, but can’t write much.
I was at this game, and boy was it great to see us spank Mulder again for the second time in a week. It was capped by Mike Young’s grand slam which was most awesome in person. If the hit that McLemore botched in the first inning wasn’t called a hit, it would have made the grand slam his 200th hit of the season. He’s got 201 now, and needs 10 more in the last 12 games to set a new Ranger record. That’s probably pretty likely to happen.
Anyway, Drese got the win, the Rangers got the win, and the bullpen didn’t give up anything. A really nice win that seemed like a no doubter from the start. And Owen, it was a blast going with you, we should have done that more this season.,
As is Ichiro’s pursuit of the all time hits record as well. It’s possible that might happen when we finish up the season in Seattle, although if Mr. Suzuki gets a couple more 5 hit games like he did last night, it won’t be a problem.
