G155: Rangers blow home finale, 7-6

The final home game of the Rangers 2009 season ended pretty poorly.
We were actually winning 5-0 going into the 8th inning. Brandon McCarthy was pitching quite well, actually. 7.2 IP, 6 hits, only two runs, neither of which were earned. Then the bullpen stunk up the joint. In fact, all seven Rays runs came in the 8th & 9th. Frank Francisco was particularly bad.
Sigh. No taking a lap of the ballpark on this finale.
