Best thing about last night?
The 14-hit, 12-run barrage from a beleaguered offense, with seven different hitters driving in runs?
Alex Rios skillfully sailing his way to a six-inning cycle?
The complete-game shutout from Derek Holland, who threw 29 balls all night — to 33 Houston batters?
The fact that, under the urgent circumstances facing his team, Holland gave the bullpen the night off?
Or that Texas snapped its franchise-record seven-game home losing streak, logging its first Rangers Ballpark win in September, on a night when it basically had to win to keep the swim alive?
Texas 12, Houston 0. Slam dunk: Still just two points. One of 162.
But a real big one.
The most important stat wasn’t the 14 or the 12 or the seven, or the 2B-1B-HR-3B, or the 9-6-0-0-1-9 or the 29/33. It was the 1 that was added to the win column, giving that loss column the night off.
Your turn, Yu. Be great.
