Rangers top Astros

The Rangers fell to Houston 2-0 last night and would be trying to get a little closer to the Silver Boot.  Houston lead 3-2 in the 7th until Rafael Palmerio homer to right to tie it at 3. That homer put Palmerio 17th on the all time homerun list.

Still tied at 3 in the 8th Alex Rodriquez tripled to center field over Craig Biggio's head, and scoring two to put Texas up two. Kevin Mench would later add an RBI single, and Juan Gonzalez would also add a two run single as the Rangers prevailed 8 to 5.
