Playing their fourth game in as many days, the Rangers' weariness was showing true form as they couldn't capitalize on the Redlegs tandem of Kevin Campbell and Aaron Carmack.
Steve Marshall busted out of a personal slump by contributing 3 of the team's 7 hits on the afternoon, including his 200th career hit as a Ranger, and scored the team's 5000th franchise run on a sacrifice fly by Robert Riley in the fifth inning.
Shawn Schmitt allowed 4 earned runs over 5 innings of work in suffering his first loss of the season. Joe Becker allowed 1 earned run in 4 innings of relief.
Offensive highlights: Steve Marshall 3-4, run; Nick Gilmore sac fly RBI; Robert Riley 1-3, sac fly RBI.
Historical Notes: Steve Marshall scored the 5000th run in franchise history! The Rangers lead the Backyard Battle series 13-9.
