Last night was about as perfect of a night you can get at Rangers Ballpark in August. It was 86 degrees at game time with a good breeze going, Ryan Dempster showed why the Rangers traded for him and the Rangers got a nice, easy win.
But, all of that isn’t good enough for some people. So, in the seventh inning, with Nelson Cruz batting, a couple guys tried to get the wave going two sections down from me. And here they are:
That’s right, it doesn’t matter at all what’s going on on the field to these guys, it’s just all about them. But, Nelson Cruz struck out so this attempt died.
In the top of the eighth, Dempster was trying to put the finishing touches on a one run, four hit outing. Again, this just wasn’t impressive to most of the crowd as the wave was going full steam with two outs and Nate McLouth at bat. After the ninth pitch of the at bat the wave finally stopped. McLouth flied out to center on the tenth pitch.
Oh, Elvis Andrus also made what’s probably the best defensive play I’ve ever seen in person.
