1-0? What the crap?
Sorry about that. Let me catch you up. Ian Kinsler led the game off with a single on the first pitch from Doug Fister. Elvis Andrus then chopped the third pitch of his at-bat just through the right side. Josh Hamilton got jammed and, uh, fisted a pitch just over the reach of Jhonny Peralta to score Kinsler. Just a few minutes after the game started, seven pitches in, the Rangers were up 1-0 and threatening to score more.
Fister did some exemplary damage control, though, getting Michael Young to ground into a double play, and striking out Adrian Beltre. Still, the early scoring really did a lot to quiet the raucous Detroit crowd.
