Wait a second. Was Houston supposed to be good at baseball again or something? I kept hearing about how the Astros were good finally. Thankfully, the Rangers arrived to set things right.

Player of the Game: The offense had a lot of nice things going for it tonight with a two-run double from Prince Fielder and two-run dong from Carlos Peguero to put four runs on Scott Feldman in the first inning. But the star tonight was former Astro Wandy Rodriguez going eight innings of one-run ball which included retiring 19 straight Astros. Where the hell did that come from?
