A.J. Murray was strong in his second start of the season, giving the Rangers six innings and allowing four runs (three earned) on five hits. But the offense could score only two runs and Texas finished the season being swept in three games by the Mariners.
Jamie Burke hit his first Major League home and layed down a squeeze bunt to help the Mariners end 2007 on a high note with a sweep of the Rangers and five straight wins. Felix Hernandez allowed two runs in 8 2./3 innings and J.J. Putz earned his 40th save.
