SAN DIEGO, CA (CBSDFW.COM) – Texas Rangers TV play-by-play man Dave Barnett had a bizarre on-air moment in the 8th inning of the game between the Rangers and San Diego Padres on Monday night.

During a brief break in play the veteran broadcaster claimed the go-ahead run was at “fifth” and rambled on about a “botched robbery” and something about a “henchman.”. His microphone was cut off for a few moments. He then returned to finish the game.

On Tuesday Barnett spoke to 1080KRLD saying he suffered from a migraine and that he currently felt fine. Barnett would not be recorded but says he will see a doctor today and his status for tonight’s game is uncertain.

Update – 2:46pm

The Rangers announced that Barnett will miss the final two games of the series in San Diego to undergo medical evaluation.
