G18: Rangers sweep M’s with 11-3 thrashing

I am not going to write a lot about this one.   The old “running out of time to write” right now thing.  But I will put down a few bullet points.

  • Justin Grimm looked as good as I’ve seen him since his initial stellar major league start.   Was quite good.
  • I got to see just a little bit of this game, but I did get to see the bottom of the fifth
  • Always amusing to see a game with an 11-3 score with an official credit for a save.  :)
  • In watching game commentary on Twitter, it was funny to see both “Nelson Cruz boomstick” and “Nelson Cruz bloopstick” at the same time. :)
  • Nice jets on Leonys Martin.  Good to see he didn’t hurt himself on his triple.
  • Martin wins the slugging percentage award for this game with a triple and a double.
  • Always ALWAYS love seeing grand slams by the Rangers.   Even better when the outfielders for the other team don’t even MOVE when the ball is headed their way.  :)
