G138: Rangers turn tables, squeak by Angels, 4-3

The Rangers got out early with some power. Josh Hamilton finally got his 30th home run of the season in the first inning, giving the Rangers a 1-0 lead. In the second inning Marlon Byrd jacked a two run shot, putting us up 3-0. We never looked back. OK, we did, because it’s the Angels, but we never lost the lead.
Kevin Millwood allowed two runs in the bottom of the second inning, but that was it for him. Kevin had another great outing, going 6.2 innings, allowing just the two runs on five hits, and no walks. Kevin also struck out seven in this game. It wasn’t a complete game, but he’s pitching as good as he ever has in a Rangers uniform.
Anyone else notice that Mike Scocscia (sp?) seems to be a manager who is constantly “confused” and seemingly gets mad if someone breathes the wrong way? You know – whenever something doesn’t go the Angels way, Soocscia has that constipated look on his face in the dugout? Happens all the time.
Offensively, the Rangers had the two home runs, and also had three doubles. The other five hits were singles.
Young 200 hit watch: one hit.
