The Texas Rangers bats were great, but surprisingly it was the pitching that is the story of this game. After Kason Gabbard threw a pitch high and inside, close to Richie Sexson's head. Sexson lost his cool then, he threw his helmet at Gabbard then tackled him starting a bench clearing brawl. Sexson was ejected afterwards. After that incident, Gabbard walked Miguel Cairo,who replaced Sexson, then allowed an infield single to shortstop Yuniesky Betancourt before being pulled. Later it was announced he was pulled because of the bruises on his legs from the fight. Sadly, the fight took the spotlight from Ian Kinsler's two-run homer in the 2nd inning off of Felix Hernandez, or Hank Blalock's replacement Ramon Vazquez's 4 for 5 night with a double and an RBI. The good thing is is that Texas pitchers have not allowed a run in their last 22 innings and just one in their last 32. The Rangers won the series 2-1 and are going home to start a weekend series against Oakland tonight.
