That could have gone better.
Jeff Wilson's game story talks about the Rangers' slump and the team losing three consecutive series for the first time since 2009. The three-consecutive-losing-series thing is a bit of a red herring, though, because the Rangers are 3-6 over that stretch, and the Rangers went 3-6 over 9 game stretches on multiple occasions in 2010, and even went 2-7 on three different occasions last year.
Richard Durrett offers his thoughts on yesterday's game at ESPN Dallas.
Evan Grant says that the Angels, not the Rangers, are the best team in the A.L. West right now. Because his story is behind the paywall, I don't know what the reasons he gives are, but I do think Evan is wrong here, for a very simple reason:
The Rangers have a better run differential than the Angels, and have played a tougher schedule than the Angels. That means the Rangers have been better than the Angels this year.
