The Rangers defeat the Astros 3-1.
But that's not the story.
Moved up in the rotation by Rangers manager Buck Showalter, Kenny Rogers pitches a complete game, saving the depleted bullpen. He only allows 3 hits on just 90 pitches. 90 pitches compared to yesterday's 300.
BTW, Freddy Garcia was moved up by Bob Melvin tonight and guess what?
He's down 3-0 to the Padres in the 4th inning. Of course, this game is doomed from the start, considering that RICH AURILIA is hitting in the 3-hole. Unreal.
And Ron Villone will get the start tomorrow evening.
I have nothing else to say.
