Texas wins, Anaheim loses, and the Rangers are now 4.5 games up of the Angels, and 6 up in the loss column.
T.R. Sullivan's game story talks about the unlikely heroes, Joaquin Arias and Andres Blanco, leading the way in the Rangers 12-1 win.
Jeff Wilson's game story notes that the game was overshadowed by a scary incident where a fan fell out of the upper deck while reaching for a foul ball.
The S-T's notes address Michael Young and Elvis Andrus each getting the day off yesterday.
Wilson writes that Rich Harden is healthy and willing be going out on a rehab assignment soon.
Sullivan's notes includes Ron Washington saying the Rangers are sticking with Justin Smoak, and that the plan right now is for Matt Harrison to start on Saturday, in place of Omar Beltre.
Kevin Sherrington says the Rangers need to make a move for pitching, and if that means dealing Justin Smoak, Derek Holland, Engel Beltre, and another prospect to the M's for Cliff Lee, then "so be it."
Meanwhile, on the bankruptcy front, Barry Shlachter writes that the trustee has alleged that Weil Gotshal, the attorneys for the Rangers, have a conflict of interest.
