Great play by Balentien, Johnson

With two out in the Rangers eighth, it denied the visitors the lead. Michael Young doubled high off the rightfield fence with two out against reliever Mark Lowe. Then Andruw Jones socked a single to left on which Balentien came up throwing, firing a perfect strike to catcher Rob Johnson, who still had to glove the ball one-handed and sweep the tag on Young going by. It had to be perfect on both ends, and it was, as the 1-1 tie is preserved going into the last of the eighth.
