Jeff Wilson's game story talks about the Rangers looking, in last night's 4-2 win, a lot more like the team that went to the World Series last season than the team we've seen for much of 2011.

T.R. Sullivan's game storypraises the work of the bullpen, which came up big with three scoreless innings.

Evan Grant has his post-game reactions up at the DMN blog.

Behind the paywall, Grant says this game could be a turning point for the Rangers.

Gil Lebreton says that Endy Chavez has filled the hole in centerfield for the Rangers, and that while Julio Borbon is playing well in AAA, centerfield isn't broken right now, so why fix it?

Joey Matches contemplates Matt Harrison and his performance so far this season...

The S-T's notes talk about Michael Young's aborted cycle attempt, Alexi Ogando and the possibility of extra rest, and Mitch Moreland sitting two days in a row.

Sullivan's notes talk about Young and Ogando, as well as Ian Kinsler's steals and Josh Hamilton and the home run derby.
