And Now They Are 1 Game Back...

Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud: Yu gave up 2 first inning homers.  Very uncharacteristic for him since he came back from his stint on the DL (he had a sub 1 ERA since coming off the DL).  Oh well, he's human after all.

Glass Half Full / Silver Lining: The Rangers had 6 stolen bases.  And the Rangers had a mini offensive explosion producing 4 runs in the top 9, fueled in large part by their running.

Oh yeah, and with the win, and A's losing earlier versus the Reds, the Rangers trail by only 1 game in the division.

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenotes: It's amazing what great base running and committing no errors in the field will do for you.  Just ask the Halos, by virtue of an error in the top of 9 they gave the Rangers an extra out.  And as usually happens when you give a MLB team an extra out, the Rangers made them pay for it.
