Great American Fantasy League

Season Three

Rangers Flatten Rays 5-1

Tampa Bay, August 7 – – The game ended in the 4th inning when Ian Kinsler slammed a three run homer off a struggling Chris Archer. Gaylord Perry controlled the game for eight innings, allowing only 6 hits and one slim run until Carlos Pena blasted a leadoff homer for the Rays in the bottom of the 9th. Jonny Gomes boomed a monster homer on the next pitch off reliever Darold Knowles. Tampa Bay proceeded to load the bases on a pair of singles and a walk off Ogando. With the winning run at the plate in an improbable bottom of the ninth, John Wetteland closed out a save by getting McGriff to foul out to end the game.
      For eight innings it was a ho-hum win for Texas. The ninth inning rally by the Rays scared the pants off the Rangers. But in the end Texas won to take two of three in the series and climb back to .500.
