Houston, you have a problem. The problem being, you are running out of fuel upon landing.
The Rangers needed a solid game after finally snatching first place from the jaws of Houston. They got much more than that. They got a good old-fashioned butt-kicker.
They were facing Dallas Keuchel, a Cy Young candidate, a left-handed pitcher, a Ranger killer if there ever was one.
The game was over after one inning. Left fielder Mike Napoli saw to that. He and Odor hit home runs in the first to put the Rangers up 6-0. Prince Fielder hit one in the fifth. Then the sixth. And Bobby Wilson hit one in the seventh.
By the time all the home run balls had landed, the Ranger won 14-3.
If this were any other league, they would have invoked the mercy rule.
