Once again Heaney had a strong start, locking up a perfect home stand for the Rangers. Going 5.2 innings, he gave up just four hits and two walks and struck out four.
Of course no good deed, or perfect home stand, goes unpunished and in the sixth inning, Jung had to come out of the game after knocking down a line drive with his glove which ended up fracturing this thumb.
Jung could miss a number of weeks.
