The diving stop by Adrian Beltre on Milton Bradley's grounder to open the eighth was a costly one for Beltre. It's a good thing he's got a $92 million contract, though, as he's going to use some of that money to buy Mitch Moreland dinner.
Beltre told Moreland after the play that he owes him a dinner because of the way he dug the ball out at first base to complete the out. Beltre said he hopes to buy Moreland a lot of dinners.
The Rangers first baseman is OK with that.
"He gets credit over there because that was a bullet down the line," he said. "I was happy I could pick him up a little. I'm looking forward to the dinner. I heard him say that and it kind of caught me off guard. I gave him a second look and said, 'Did he say dinner?' We'll see what happen. You'll stay tuned."
