A game in which Roy Oswalt goes six innings and David Murphy has four hits, including two home runs, sounds like an easy win, right? Not so fast there. No.  My boys had to make it interesting again. Roy Oswalt was decent tonight.  Not great, but decent.  He pitched six innings, allowing five runs on 13 hits.  Yeah, that’s a lot of hits, Roy.  You’re probably lucky the Tigers didn’t score more. And David Murphy!!!  He hit two home runs tonight.  Yes, two.  A three-run shot in the 2nd inning and a solo dinger in the 4th inning.  It was pretty fun to watch.  A lot of people still don’t see Murph as an everyday player, but I am perfectly content to continue cheering for him in a Rangers uniform. Ian Kinsler got jealous of Murphy’s offensive burst.  He hit a two-run home run in the 4th as well.  And this wasn’t one of his signature HRs to left field.  This was to deep centerfield.  We haven’t seen one of those in a really long time. By the 7th inning, the Rangers were up 11-5.  Rangers
