G9: Late errors cost Rangers the CLE series finale

This was a pretty good pitcher’s duel.
David Huff tossed a complete game for Cleveland to get the win. 9 innings, just four hits and a walk. Was a great line. Matt Harrison went seven innings, giving up just five hits, a walk, and one earned run. It’s unfortunately the two unearned runs that cost him and the team the game.
There wasn’t much to the Rangers offense. Four hits total. Two of them by Michael Young, and one of those scored both runs. Was a two run home run in the fourth. The other two hits were singles by Elvis Andrus & Vlad Guerrero. Not much offense, but those two runs were holding up well.
We were only six outs away from the win. Then they made two errors in quick succession after having made just four in the first previous eight games combined. One was Elvis, and one was Michael Young, so it was pretty surprising.
Sadly the sweep got away from us.
