Steve Buechele gave the Rangers a big blast in the 3rd. He would hit a 3 run HR (3) off of Charlie Leibrandt to give the Rangers a 3-1 lead. He would finish the day 2-4 with a HR and 3 RBI.
Dickie Noles (1-3) turned in a great start for the Rangers. He would give up 1 run on 5 hits. His only mistake was he left a fastball up in the zone to George Brett and he would deposit it in to the rightfield seats for his 4th HR of the season. Charlie Leibrandt takes the loss. He is (3-4) on the season.
The Final Score 5-1 Rangers
