G55: Tommy Hunter dominates Rays, Rangers win 6-1

Tommy Hunter made his first start of the season on Saturday, and pitched like a guy who was not going to be making his last start, either. Tommy dominated. He pitched a complete game (9IP), and allowed just one run on five hits. That one run came on a solo home run given up to Sean Rodriguez in the second. Tommy walked nobody, so he had very few baserunners to deal with.
The Rangers big offensive highlight was a two run home run by Josh Hamilton. Elvis Andrus had a double and a triple, but from what I remember of the game, there wasn’t a dominant standout guy offensively. Elvis & Max Ramirez were the only Rangers with more than one hit.
But this game wasn’t about our offense, it was about the domination of Tommy Hunter. Really nice start. Let’s hope that sticks around.
