Rangers Handcuff Brewers


Game 1: Texas 3  Milwaukee 2
Richie Zisk's 2 home runs helped doom Milwaukee.
WP: Ferggie Jenkins (2-0, 3.22 ERA)
LP: Mike Caldwell (2-2, 3.57 ERA)
MVP: Ferguson Jenkins

In true Brewer fashion the Crew only had 3 hits, however, 2 were for home runs as Milwaukee was edged out by the visiting Rangers.  Texas showed Milwaukee that they had some power of their own by cranking 2 homers.  Both by Richie Zisk (.242 avg, 4 HRs) who went 3-4 on the day.  Ferguson Jenkins went the distance for Texas to pick up win number two on the season.

Game 2: Texas 2  Milwaukee 0
WP: Doyle Alexander (3-3, 1.97 ERA)
LP: Larry Sorenson (3-5, 2.44  ERA)
S: Reggie Cleveland (2)
MVP: Reggie Cleveland

Texas pitching dominated Brewer hitting as the Rangers held Milwaukee to just 5 hits in a 2-0 shutout.  Doyle Alexander got the win (3rd) as he pitched 6.2 innings before giving way to Reggie Cleveland who earned the save.  Milwaukee, who had been near the top of the majors in batting average, struggled from the plate as Texas sweeps through town with two wins.  The Rangers improve to 12-13 on the season while Milwaukee drops to 15-12.
