Texas Rangers was far from ordinary This was the first time in 126 years that teams from rival major leagues were playing in the regular season The game was met with all the hype and hoopla it deserved and it played out nicely Stan Javier became the unlikely hero with his first home run in more than a year and tiebreak ing double to give the Giants a 43 I Interleague firsts Page 2B victory
