Texas Rangers Outlast the Rain and Atlanta Braves 5-4 in Extra Innings
A rain delay over 2 hours and a late Atlanta Braves rally forcing extra innings couldn’t stop a 5-4 victory Saturday night for the Texas Rangers in Atlanta.
Adrian Beltre hit the game winning RBI-single in the 10th inning to give Texas its second consecutive victory and the series win over their National League East opponent in Interleague play.
Matt Harrison earned a no-decision for Texas on the mound, but what is noteworthy of Harrison’s outing is that he returned to the game after the rain delay to pitch 6 1/3 innings giving up 3 runs, 1 of them earned, on 3 hits, 1 walk, and 6 strikeouts.
For Atlanta on the mound Derek Lowe took a no decision in the loss going 5 innings and giving up 4 runs on 7 hits.
Texas and Atlanta face off tomorrow afternoon at 12:35pm.
