G120: Rangers win again against A’s, 7-1

The Rangers took care of Oakland again, although in this game, the runs didn’t come early, they came late. The game was scoreless going into the sixth, as Colby Lewis & Trevor Cahill pitched a pretty good pitcher’s duel. Even after six it was just 1-0. After 7, it was 2-1.
Colby actually came out earlier than I figured he would. Just went 6.1 innings, but had 101 pitches. A little high, but I didn’t think he needed to come out then. Still, he got out with just one run allowed. No other runs were scored.
The Rangers offense woke up late, and put up a three spot in the 8th and a two spot in the 9th to give us a 7-1 win.
Everyone had at least one hit in this game – Kinsler & Hamilton had two each. Kinsler’s two hits were both doubles. Napoli & Elvis also got into the doubles party, too.
Nice win.
