Series By The Numbers: Yankees @ Rangers

To quote the great* band Limp Bizkit, the Texas Rangers are “rollin’.” After dropping the first game of the home stand against the New York Yankees, they rebounded with two great games with timely hitting and good-to-great pitching and a whole bunch of Yuuuuuuuuuu-ing. They now continue their attack on the American League East with a series against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Also, how great is it that Robbie Ross leads Major League Baseball in wins. That’s some timely relief pitching right there.

*Not really a great band.
