For the Rangers, it was David Dellucci's day. He knocked in three runs as he went to distance for a two-run shot, plus an RBI single. Layne Nix also hit a roundtripper in the fourth to give the Rangers five runs.
Texas padded their lead in the sixth as Giant reliever, Jason Christiansen, hit Hank Blalock with a pitch. Blalock came around to score on Dellucci's hit.
Notes: Giant slugger, Barry Bonds, had to sit this game out because he experienced a sore back during batting practice prior to the game. It's nothing major and the Giants' training staff assured reporters that Bonds will be ready to play by Friday at the latest... Jeffrey Hammonds, injured in yesterday's game by a pitch, will be out for 4-6 weeks... Edgardo Alfonzo still has a sore forearm, but is expected to return on Friday.
