G115: Little Cat’s 5 RBI’s take Rays, 7-4

This game was really powered by Frank Catalanotto’s five RBI night. Three of them came on a home run that just barely cleared the wall in the right field corner, and the other two on a single. It was a productive night for Cat. Speaking of his nickname, “Little Cat”, he got that (I think) because of Andres Galarraga being on our team at the time having the name “Cat”, so Frank got little Cat. Does he really still need to be called that? :)
Michael Young contriubted as well with the other two Ranger RBI’s. They both came on a third inning double by Mike, scoring Vazquez and Kinsler.
We had just seven hits, and scored seven runs. That’s always efficient. :)
Pitching wise, Brandon McCarthy was pretty decent. He threw only 4.2 innings, his biggest problem was again pitch count. Didn’t get out of the fifth inning, and he was at 102 pitches. That’s not good. On the other hand, he didn’t give up any earned runs, either. There were three unearned runs, but those were quite clearly a fielder’s error, so if you take those out, the earned runs were good. Pitch count was most definitely not.
CJ Wilson got his fourth save, and when he comes out, you get that “gut feeling” that he’s a closer. Just seems to have “it”. We shall see what happens when Aki comes back.
