G37: Rangers take opener in the Bronx, 4-2

Milwood strong. Mussina strong. Cordero strong. Otsuka strong. Farnsworth not.
That’s the game. Milwood had a great game, going seven innings (on only 78 pitches), and at one point retired about a dozen in a row. In fact, Kevin would have likely kept going, but had to come out due to it raining in the Bronx, causing another rain delay. Cordero came out, pitched a scorless 8th, and Otsuka a scoreless ninth. Between all three pitchers, we gave up a total of six hits, a really great pitching performance, plus no walks.
Mike Mussina also went seven, giving up 6 hits and two runs, matching Milwood. However, Kyle Farnsworth came out and pitched in the rain, giving up 3 hits and two runs in his one inning of work. That gave us the game.
We’re now two games up in the West, which is nice to see.
