Rangers split yesterday, in what was a rather odd couple of games, which included Colby Lewis, in Game 1, becoming the first pitcher in major league history to give up 5 or more home runs while striking out 10 or more batters, as well as becoming the second pitcher in major league history to go 5+ innings, allow 5+ hits, and have every one of those hits allowed be a home run.

Jeff Wilson has the game stories from yesterday at the S-T website.

T.R. Sullivan has a game story for Game 1 and for Game 2.

Richard Durrett has his Rapid Reaction to Game 1 and to Game 2, and writes that Colby Lewis made history with his outing yesterday.

At the DMN blog, Evan Grant has his thoughts on yesterday's games.

Durrett writes the Rangers finished their road trip with momentum.

Grant says the road trip made the Rangers better.

Wilson has a story about the Yu Darvish/C.J. Wilson matchup that kicks off the three game series this weekend between Texas and Anaheim.

The S-T's notes talk about Adrian Beltre returning to the lineup at third base, Elvis Andrus wanting to hit .300 this year, and who is going to catch today.

Sullivan's notes talk about Darvish flying back to Texas early, Scott Feldman's availability yesterday, and Adrian Beltre.
