14-15

Heart-breaker tonight...

In the third inning, a double was followed by an infield single to give the Rangers 2 on with no outs. A sacrifice fly gave them a run, but that was all they could come up with. 1-0 Rangers.

The next half inning, with 2 outs, Jay Gibbons(a lefty) lifted off on John Koronka(a lefty), smashing one into the right field seats. 1-1.

And the score stayed like that, until the 7th inning, when Daniel was finally pulled. Great game for him, and here is his line:
7 IP, 1 ER, 6 hits, 2 walks, 6 K's. Fantastic game for Daniel, especially the walks. Saying he's looking much better than the beginning of the season is an understatement.

And Koronka was cruising too. He got himself all the way into the ninth, when after a Terrero ground out, Melvin Mora singled and forced Koronka out of the game. Here is his line.
8 1/3 IP, 1 ER, 6 hits, 0 walks, 4 K's. Magnificent game for him.
In came Otsuka. 3 pitches later, a DP ended the inning, and the Rangers got a chance to walk off with a W in the bottom of the ninth.

But they couldn't take adavantage of it. After a leadoff hit by pitch, the next 3 batters were retired by Chris "sweet dreams" Ray. To the 10th we go...

After back to back 2 out Millar and Conine singles, Chris Gomez lined out to end the rally.

The bullpen held serve until the bottom of the 12th, when John Halama came in. The second batter of the inning, Mark DeRosa, took him deep, ending the game and giving the Rangers the win.

Tough loss.
