66-51 Rangers 7 Mariners 6 Walk it off Josh Hamilton!

What was supposed to be a pitchers duel turned into an early inning bloodbath. Alexi Ogando only lasted 2 and 2/3 innings, giving up 8 hits, 2 walks and 6 ER. Not a usual line score for the normally razor sharp Ogando, but late in the game, the run support took him off the hook for the loss. Today wasn't a pitchers day, it was a hitter's day, and though you don't think of the Mariners as an offensive powerhouse, they managed to beat up on one of the best pitchers in baseball, but beating up on pitchers is one of the Rangers specialties, and tonight was no different. Ian Kinsler looks to be coming out of his funk, seeing as he took Josh Lueke deep for 2 runs in the 7th, his 17th of the year, and his OBP remains high as he drew a critical free pass in the 9th to combine with Endy Chavez's bunt single to set up Josh Hamilton's walk off hit, his 3rd of the season. What can I say about this guy that we don't all ready know? All I will say is this. This man wins baseball games.
