Beltre had a homer in the 2nd and two more in the 4th. He is due up third as they go to the bottom of the 6th.

Live look in on gameday.

Grounded out. May have another AB in the 8th but Texas is up by 8 at home.

Was it Fernando Tatis that had two grand slams in one innings several years back?

Off the same pitcher, no doubt.

Beltre due up 4th as the Rangers come to bat in the bottom of the 8th.


Kinsler has doubled to lead off. Beltre should get a chance unless Kinsler does something silly.

Beltre is probably one of he most underrated players of the last decade. The guy is an absolute warrior and really deserves more respect than this.

Beltre grounded into a double play. If it was Philly they would have booed him.

Beltre is actually one of my favorites, just a harmless joke on my part given current events. They can't all be zingers.

While you were joking, it wasn't out of bounds. The guy has been shown to be a liar once before. He signed a contract before he was legally allowed to do so and lied about it for a few years before it was discovered. Even though it was a joke, it's not a stretch to think he is susceptible to using products that would give him an advantage.

He's a great player, but he's proven he's not unwilling to bend the rules.

That's jojo bait if I've ever seen it. :D

That was awesome Brutus. I sat there in total amazement. It may have been one of the few times I've seen the fans give the opposing player a standing ovation. Funniest thing about that is that he hit both of them off the same pitcher.
