The Stat Line Of The Night – 07/08/09 – Andruw Jones
Total Pro Sports – On Tuesday night it was Paul Konerko terrorizing the opposing pitchers. Last night it was Andruw Jones’ turn to do the same. you can be Ervin Santana will be having nightmares of the Texas Rangers DH over the next couple of days.
Continuing a trend that has seen the Rangers dominate the Los Angeles Angels throughout this season, Jones led his team on their way to a 8-1 dismantling of their division foes. Going 3 for 5, he made the most of his hits, taking each one over the outfield fence, two coming off Santana and the other in the 5th inning off Rich Thompson. In the end, Jones had 4 RBIs to go along with his three homers, earning himself “The Stat Line Of The Night” for Wednesday, July 8th, 2009.
These victories continnue to be big ones for the Rangers as their domination in the season series against the Angels has helped them claim top spot in the AL West. Should they find themselves in first at the end of the season, they will look back on their series against the Angels as the key to such success.
