1-2-3 sixth inning proves costly for Rangers

The Giants were retired in order for a second straight inning in the sixth, but the Rangers have lost reliever Alexi Ogando to injury. The right-hander got the first two outs of the sixth, but he grabbed his left side after a 0-1 breaking ball to Juan Uribe. He had felt the pain on the first pitch to Uribe. Ogando left the game, and Darren Oliver entered to retire Uribe.

Ogando's World Series appears to be done with a left oblique strain. He tossed 3 2/3 scoreless innings and looked great doing so. He's a big loss.

Due up for the Rangers: Molina (0 for 1), Moreland (0 for 1), Andrus (0 for 1, BB).

it would be a big loss except that in DimeBag's opposites world, Ogando is apparently now a middle reliever and Holland et alia are late inning relievers.

so from that perspective since he was being mis/not used, it doesn't matter much. he wouldn't have pitched again unless we were down 8-0 in the last game of the series the way Dime Bag Ron manages. sad but true.

total butt kicking by Bumgarner and SF today. gonna be tough to see bats turning it around with Lincecum and Cain (if lucky) next. good thing Ron told us this was not a must-win game. maybe he didn't notice who was pitching games 5/6 if necessary for SF?
