This game was tough. The Rangers had this one a couple of different times and let the game slip through their fingers. They had a three run lead in the eighth, a two run lead in the ninth and then a two run lead in the tenth and all of those leads went by the wayside.
Washington was also out managed in this game. He didn’t set his pen up and it came back to haunt him. Derek Holland shouldn’t have been pulled and it went downhill from there.
Mike Napoli had another big game. He went two for three with an RBI and three walks. Josh Hamilton also came up big and he went three for six with three RBIs and two runs. Adrian Beltre, Nelson Cruz and Josh Hamilton all belted home runs in the loss.
So it now goes to a winner take all game seven. I’m thinking Chris Carpenter throws in the finale on short rest and it’ll be Matt Harrison throwing for the Rangers. May the best team win.
