World Series Game 7: Rangers Have Three Outs Left, Jason Motte Coming In

Mike Gonzalez came in to strike out Skip Schumaker in the seventh inning, and he stayed in to pitch the eighth inning. He retired the first two hitters in the eighth, but he had to leave because of an injury. Alexi Ogando came in and finished off Allen Craig.

None of that is especially interesting, but it's worth noting that Mike Gonzalez -- he of seven innings with the Rangers in the regular season -- was on the playoff roster. Koji Uehara and Yoshinori Tateyama were not. The Rangers lost the World Series because of a bullpen collapse, for the most part. Just thought I'd mention it.

Motte's coming in, the St. Louis fans are feeling perky and boisterous, and we might be just a few minutes away from the end of the 2011 baseball season.
