I'll be closing the September Contest later today so get your final comments in...and I'll spend the next 17 days sifting through them. Seriously, some of you have gone completely bonkers and it's been fun reading some of the comments. I've run across a few posts that I didn't even remember.
Now on to important stuff. The Rangers showed up big time last night even if it was the Royals. Yu Darvish had a perfect game through 5 innings and ended up giving up 3 hits and 3 runs in an 8-4 win. It was a power show for the Rangers on the mound and at the plate.
Geovany Soto hit a 3 run shot in the 2nd inning. It was his 3rd as a Ranger.
Josh Hamilton hit his 38th homer of the season in the 3rd inning.
Adrian Beltre hit his 28th homerun in the 6th inning.
Nelson Cruz followed Beltre with his 22nd homerun of the season. It gave the Rangers a brief 6 run lead.
Michael Young even got in on the act and belted a two run homer in the ninth, just his 5th of the season.
I was even rooting for the Angels yesterday since they were playing the A's. I'll be rooting for them again today. Go Angels!
