So, About Last Night. . .

Seriously, the Rangers 20-6, 27 hit victory over the Twins Monday night was crazy. Lots of the craziness has already been discussed elsewhere. Here is another bit of absurdity for you:

↵

Nelson Cruz had four hits. Two of those hits were doubles. He scored two runs, and batted another in. He had a ridiculous game.

↵

And that line added just a 1.3% to the Rangers' chances of winning*. An individual performance that would normally be highlight material was barely a contribution to his team's victory.

↵

"Wow" doesn't cover it.

↵

*Win Probabilty Added
