G139: Beltre cycle leads M’s to bombing of Texas, 12-6

This game irritated me. We put up a five spot in the bottom of the fifth inning. It was all for naught, because after that, the Rangers did not score any more, but the Mariners did. Eight more times!
It’s hard to win when your pitching staff gives up 20 hits. We got to the Mariners’ starter (Carlos Silva) pretty well (4.2 IP, 10H, 4BB, 6ER). You had a good feeling with all of that. Didn’t stick up, though. Bummer.
The best moment of the game though was the three run home run by Taylor Teagarden, who just arrived as a September callup. He wasn’t even supposed to play in the game, but got in, and jacked a three run shot with his parents in Tom Hicks’ box down front. Showing off Teagarden’s medal from the Olympics, it was a great moment. But that was it. Game stunk after that.
