Game 2 – Rangers 6, Rays 0: My Top 10 Observations
10. I know the Rangers banged two more homers and generally roped the ball around the park, but I think Josh Hamilton set the tenor with his back-to-back superb catches — one diving — in the second inning.
9. As expected, Tampa starter James Shields was, well, James Shields. In the third inning alone he hit a batter, threw behind a batter and allowed the speedy Matt Treanor to score when he fired an errant pick-off throw to first base. Crooked numbers, indeed.
