Edwin Jackson has been pitching well, but even he couldn't have expected this. The Devil Rays took the middle game behind Jackson's four-hit, eight-strikeout shutout performance, the first of his career. Carl Crawford extended his hitting streak to 12 games, one shy of his career high.
John Rheinecker was looking for his second win of the season, and he pitched well enough to get it, if not for the Rays' Edwin Jackson's shutout. Texas was only able to get four hits on a night that Rusty Greer was inducted into the Rangers Hall of Fame.
