G154: 11 run 5th leads to 15-3 thrashing of Rays

I was planning on skipping this game. I had some other family stuff going on. However, I tuned in at the bottom of the fifth, and had a minute or two, so I peeked in. Picked the right time, that’s for sure.
The Rangers were losing 3-1 at the time I peeked in, and I have to say I wasn’t sure why I picked that moment to stop and watch. It was a party, that’s for sure. The really fun part is that all the scoring happened after there were already two outs. That’s very sweet.

I enjoyed the grand slam. Heck, I enjoyed the bottom of the fifth. Too bad there weren’t more games like this the last month, or we would have been actually playing for something this night.
