Lowell slams Fish to a 12-5 victory
Yes it was against the Texas Rangers. But this year the Rangers are much improved. Besides Guillermo Mota stinking up the joint….again, the pitching staff performed quite well against the big Texas bats. What the Rangers didn’t expect was the offensive output the Marlins had last night. Seventeen hits and eleven RBI’s is exactly what we needed to get out of this slump. One of the hottest Marlins this month has been Mike Lowell and I for one am thrilled. His grand slam was part of a seven run 8th inning that put the fish on top.
And the Fish are out of the basement folks.
The Orioles pulled further ahead in the AL East with a win over Cincy while the Yanks were crushed by the Cards and the Red Sox were not only beat by the Cubs but were spit on in the process.
Today is a good day….the wife is away with the kids and I get free reign to watch MLB.tv all day.
