The Rangers rebounded after last night's loss with a convincing victory against an always dangerous Phillies squad. Riding another strong pitching performance by Henry, the Rangers hit their stride at the plate scoring in every inning. The offensive barrage was led by Eddie with three hits and Jack and Jackson with two hits apiece. But the biggest shot of the night came off the bat of the red-hot Kevin who crushed a first inning offering over the right field fence to give the Rangers a lead they would never relinquish. The Rangers continued to play strong defense with their fifth double play in three games turning an unorthodox 5-6-3 twin-killing in the fourth to end a Phillies threat. Rookie Matt added a fine catch in left and stroked an RBI single in the third inning.
The Rangers will need to be at their best when they hit the field again Monday versus a surging Pirates squad.
