G156: Rangers win on Sunday night, 6-2

I started watching this game, but tuned out because I am not a fan of watching Rangers games with other broadcasters. I don’t really have anything against Morgan & Miller, but they have to make it seem like the person watching the game has never seen the game. I don’t need a basic education on the Rangers when I’m watching their games, I know what I’m watching already. Not only that, they do the interview the managers in the dugout stuff, which I could do without.
We took the rubber game of the Oakland series 6-2, behind a great performance by Juan Dominguez, who went 7.1IP, giving up just 2ER on 8 hits, and 0 BB. Benoit & Cordero finished up, giving up nothing, was a good pitching performance from the guys in the Texas uniforms. On the other side, Kirk Saarloos got knocked around a bit, giving up 5ER on 8H in 3.2IP. Not a great performance there at all.
Offensively, we were led by Mike Young (2-3), Jason Botts (3-4), and Rod Barajas (2-4, 3R HR). Back to two games under .500 with 6 games to go. We should do OK in Seattle, the final three games at home will be the tough ones.
Mike Young watch: 2-3, now batting .333 (.14 points ahead of Guerrero), 215 hits – needs two hits to break own franchise record for hits
Phil Nevin watch: Back to the bench after going 0-4 yesterday, got another $58k
HR watch: 1 (Barajas), Team total: 258. Needed to set record: 7. Games left: 6
