That was the 2010 Colby Lewis, the guy we were counting on to carry a lot of the lead this season.  And that was also more like the 2010 Neftali Feliz that we saw yesterday, which is very encouraging.

Jeff Wilson's game story talks about a big win for the Rangers yesterday's taking the rubber game to win their first road series since their first road series of the season.

T.R. Sullivan says in his game story that David Price pitched well, but not well enough to beat the Rangers, given how Colbyashi and Feliz pitched.

Evan Grant has his thoughts on the game up at the DMN Rangers blog.  Grant also has a piece up behind the paywall on yesterday's game.

Richard Durrett has his post-game recap up at ESPN Dallas. 

The S-T's notes cover, among other things, Ian Kinsler's recent time off, coaches being gone this weekend, and Arthur Rhodes being used in more of a LOOGY role going forward. 

Sullivan's notes include Matt Harrison's blister, which is causing him to miss today's start, and Josh Hamilton wanting to kick the smokeless tobacco habit.

Jamey Newberg writes that the window is still open for Chris Davis to be a production major leaguer, be it at first base or third base.

The current All Star balloting has Michael Young leading among DHs, and Josh Hamilton as one of the top three vote-getters in the outfield.
