ST26: Rangers lose tight one to Giants, 2-1

As I write this, the game has ended, but I haven’t seen any box scores on the game. But with a score of 2-1, you can be pretty assured of one thing. There was a lot of pitching and defense. There always is in a 2-1 score. Was definitely a crisp moving game, coming in at only 2:13.
The linescore is in, and that alone tells me a few things. Chris Young pitched well. The two runs he gave up were in the first and the sixth. The run from the first was a home run to JT Snow, and the Rangers tied it up in the fourth with our only run, a solo home run by Gary Matthews Jr (who seems more and more to be not just a backup outfielder). But that was it for Rangers offense. We did have seven hits all told, but the only one that mattered was Matthews’ jack. Chris Young was a hard luck loser today. :(
Our old buddy Al Levine, who is with the Giants (I wasn’t aware of that) got the save. Nice to see him hanging around. I rather liked him when he was a Ranger awhile back.
