Tweeting Texas 4, New York 3.
Top of 1st inning: Reminder
to CJ: See how many pitches the Yanks
took that inning? Channel your Cliffly and pound, pound, pound.
Bottom of 1st inning: I’m
pretty much ok with that Andrus AB. Deep count, oppo
T3: Terrible play by Cantu. (Saved by CJ.)
T3: Poundage. More, please.
B3: Bunting here makes less than zero
sense, Cristian Guzman.
B3: If Guzman didn’t start another
game as a Ranger, I’d be fine with that. Rather have Freddy. Or Luis.
T4: Brutal defensive inning. CJ now shoots for his second save of the night.
T4: This is Very Good CJ tonight, so
far. Despite inconsistent zone from the
AAA ump. Tremendous. #doingwork
B4: Good grief I love this X-mo super
slow motion stuff. Love it.
T5: Pretty elementary when CJ is
commanding the curve like that, and locating his FB.
T5: Commanding the toss to 1B
apparently another matter. F.
T5: That’s a freakin’ All-Star play
by Molina. Very good throw. Extraordinary catch.
T6: This one has the feel of a
Rangers-Yankees playoff game. #notallgood
B6: If only we had a 5th infielder
nearly as good as our 4th outfielder.
B7: RT @dwcook I love important baseball. So much.
B8: Ok. Go to Feliz in the 9th even if tied — off day
yesterday and “off day” tomorrow.
T9: Jamey gets his wish, as Feliz is
in. (via @aandro)
B9: The next Texas pitcher I want to
see on the mound is Cliff Lee. End it.
T10: Credit Molina
for staying with the slider with AO and Neffy as often as he has.
T10: All those
high-octane innings and big K numbers…yet that last inning may have been one
of Feliz’s best ever. #5pitchesagainstheartoforder
B10: What did Murph
*not* do tonight? What a game. What a Game.
Two more things, non-Twitter variety:
Seattle 2, Oakland 0.
Cliff Lee vs. Javier Vazquez on Wednesday, for the sweep.
