I missed a great deal of tonight’s game while I was at band rehearsal. I arrived home during the 6th inning, so I missed most of the excitement.
The Rangers got behind 2-0 early, but the Ian Kinsler hit a lead-off home run in the bottom half of the first frame. And a four-run burst in the 4th, which included a Michael Young triple, showed the Texas boys weren’t going down without a fight.
I missed all of that, but I did get to see Josh Hamilton’s monster home run and the tail end of Yu Darvish’s start as well as the bullpen.
Darvish was decent tonight. Possibly more than decent. Seven innings. Four runs. Four hits. One walk. Ten strikeouts. I’ll take that. Every time. I enjoy watching him pitch and wish we had more than one of him. Especially since Colby Lewis went to the disabled list today with tendonitis in his right arm. He’s the third pitcher from the Opening Day starting rotation to go down. GET WELL, BOYS!!
Mike Adams let things get a little too interesting in
