Man, that was a depressing game last night.

Jeff Wilson writes in his game story that Derek Holland kept throwing his sinker last night, but it wouldn't sink...nevertheless, Wilson writes, Holland was "satisfied" with his performance.

T.R. Sullivan's game story talks about the Rangers missing out on their one chance for a big inning last night.

Evan Grant has his thoughts and observations on last night's game at the DMN blog.

Blair Angulo has a Rapid Reaction at the ESPN Dallas blog.

Tim Cowlishaw writes that the Rangers will be challenged by the Angels this year for the first time in the Rangers' three year run. The funny thing is, the Rangers' lead is larger now than it was at the same time the previous two years, and the Angels certain spent much of last season threatening the Rangers before Texas pulled away in the final month...anyone else remember that stretch of about a week where the Angels were a game back, and won every time the Ranger won, while losing when the Rangers lost?

Behind the paywall, Evan Grant writes that the Rangers have become the worst offensive team in the A.L.

Wilson has a story on Craig Gentry, and how Gentry has paired his usual terrific defense this season with quality production at the plate.

Anthony Andro writes that the key for the Rangers down the stretch will be their bullpen.

Grant has a story on the Rangers' attendance this season, which looks guaranteed to surpass 3 million on the year.

Neftali Feliz had a rehab start for Round Rock last night, and it went poorly.

The S-T's notes talk about Colby Lewis's forearm soreness which could land him back on the disabled list, injury updates on Neftali Feliz, Koji Uehara, and Mark Lowe, and Yu Darvish looking to bounce back today from his bad start in Seattle.

Sullivan's notes hit on Julio Borbon's future, Lewis's situation, Mitch Moreland getting ready to go on a rehab assignment, and Craig Gentry's playing time.
