9-5 - Texas Rangers Defeat Chicago Cubs as Beltre Goes Mighty Over the Ivy

New, comments

Four runs is the new ten runs!

Yes, it was cold
Yes, it was cold

Derek Holland went 7 scoreless innings - allowing only 2 hits, zero walks, and collecting six strikeouts - to pick up a well deserved first win of the season and keep his solid April rolling.

Under the menacing glower of cold weather hitting, the Rangers finally got a big hit in the from of an Adrian Beltre two-run long ball in the 8th. What was particularly impressive about that home run is it seemed like a night where hitting one out was an impossibility given the frigid conditions.

The less we speak about that 9th inning, the better.

Player of the Game: Craig Gentry's beautiful, sexy body. Bless his heart.
