Congrats to Wes Littleton for Saving the Game

Littleton preserved a 27-run lead.


Let's not overlook that Texas was clinging to a 14-3 lead when he entered the game. Wes Littleton, prevent defense.

Is the save rule a joke or what? Good thing managers pitch to it.

somehow they scored 30 runs and Nelson Cruz didn't get an RBI in seven at-bats.

Texas' previous record for runs scored? 26, when they beat the Orioles 26-7 back on 4/19/1996.

The interesting tidbit there? A pitcher (the notable Ed Vosberg) recorded in that game as well. A 16-run bottom of the eighth fueled the victory that night.

August 22 also holds another distinction in Ranger history. On that date in 1989, Nolan Ryan recorded his 5000th strikeout.

Wes Littleton actually recorded a triple double as a last minute substitute off the bench for his son in a peewee pickup basketball game earlier in the day. He had a busy day putting out fires on August 22nd!

I thought Michael Young's day was surprisingly unproductive, given that he had five hits and his team plated 39 runs.
