61-43

The Rangers survived Dan Haren. Just like that, yesterday's loss is erased from memory.

For possibly only the second time this season, the Rangers got the Rich Harden they paid for in December. Considering it was a long shot to even assume Rich Harden would see another start in the Rangers rotation again this season, getting a game like that from him wasn't exactly something you could count on but was great to see.

The way in which Harden went about pitching was a complete turn-around from his early season foibles. 7 innings, 5 hits, 1 run, 3 Ks, and only 2 BBs while averaging 12 pitches per inning. If the Rangers now have the Rich Harden they thought they had to start the season, it could be like picking up another very good arm at the deadline.
