After yesterday's 18-3 win, the Rangers go for the sweep today against Josh Beckett...

Jeff Wilson's game story at the S-T talks about the Rangers recovering from a rough top of the first to set a team record for the most runs scored at Fenway Park.

T.R. Sullivan's game story focuses on the offensive outburst that included six home runs from Texas.

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

Richard Durrett has his Rapid Reaction at the ESPN Dallas blog.

Grant looks at some of the possible reasons behind the Rangers' decision to have Yu Darvish start Thursday and Matt Harrison start Friday, rather than vice versa.

Grant has a story about Josh Hamilton behind the paywall.

The S-T's notes talk about Yu Darvish and Matt Harrison being flip-flopped in the rotation, Mitch Moreland feeling better after seeing the dentist about his abscessed tooth, and Derek Holland on consistency.

Sullivan's notes hit on Darvish and Harrison, Moreland, Robbie Ross, and the Rangers' draft picks in this year's draft.
