Watching last night's Rangers-Rays matchup, it was clear that Texas was prepared to take it to Tampa Bay almost from the first pitch, with Elvis Andrus scoring from second base on a quirky groundout to first base. Texas scored two more runs on plays where the Rays -- particularly catcher Kelly Shoppach -- were caught flat footed. Shoppach was booed ferociously by the Trop crowd when, with a runner on second, he popped out to short center in the bottom of the seventh. All in all, the Rangers just went out and took the game -- and the series. And Cliff Lee is scary good when he's on his game.
