It was nice to see the Rangers bounce back tonight after facing Felix Hernandez with no-hit stuff last night to remain hot offensively. Last year, in mid-September, the Rangers were 3 1/2 back of Boston for the Wild Card when they faced Felix Hernandez, got shut out, and then lost the next four games while scoring only one run total in those five games.
The bottom of the lineup (Francoeur, Cantu, Molina) went 6-12 with 2 runs and 4 RBI tonight. When the Rangers bottom three do well, the Rangers do well.
Also, Cliff Lee!!
