>The Rangers and Tigers played a mini-marathon on Monday.  In a game that ended nearly 5 hours after the first pitch, saw 13 different pitchers and lasted for 14 innings, the Rangers bested the Tigers 8-6 on Nelson Cruz’s 12th home run of the season, a two-run shot off of Enrique Gonzalez.

When asked about his game-winning dinger, Cruz said, “You know, I just got tired of playing.  My stomach was growling, and it was beginning to annoy me.  So, I thought I’d just end it right there.”

After touching home, Cruz was disappointed that the rest of the team wasn’t there to jump around him.  In his hunger-fatigue, he forgot that it wasn’t a walk-off shot because they were the visiting team.
