G134: Rangers sweep Royals (!) with 3-2 win

HOLY CRAP! It’s a game played on August 27th, and it’s the first time all season I’ve been able to use that graphic. I’ve been using it on my site for years, but for the first time in 2008, it gets broken out. That’s kind of sad, actually.
This was the second straight game with a pitcher’s duel. Yesterday it was Millwood & Greinke. This game it was Matt Harrison & Brian Bannister. Harrison pitched into the 8th inning, and gave up two runs (just one earned). Bannister went into the 7th, and gave up three runs (two earned). Both pitched well. KC was done in again by an unearned run, which proved to be the difference maker.
This game was almost all Brandon Boggs (2-4, HR), Chris Davis (2-4, 2B), & Jarrod Saltamacchia (3-4, 2 2B). These guys had all our hits, except two.
The more amazing thing was a sweep – in Kansas City!
