Drew Davison's game story talks about how one pitch turned what had been a great outing from Scott Feldman into a disappointing outing from Scott Feldman.

Anthony Andro's game story talks about it being a tale of two games -- the first three innings, in which the Rangers were dominant, and then the final six innings, when Detroit took over.

The game story at the Rangers' website notes Feldman came a pitch away from being able to extend his winning streak to seven straight decisions.

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

Durrett writes that the Rangers had chances to score more runs yesterday, particularly early, but didn't take advantage of them.

Despite yesterday's struggles, the Rangers say they are ready to go up against Justin Verlander today.

The decision to designate Alberto Gonzalez for assignment means the Rangers have just three bench players, which Ron Washington says he's not comfortable with.

Davison has a story on the Rangers' honoring their 40th anniversary all-time Ranger team today.

Durrett has a blog post on his interactions with Eric Nadel over the years.

Mike Heika has a blog post with quotes from Nolan Ryan about the 40th anniversary team.

The S-T's notes talk about Mark Lowe's activation, Alberto Gonzalez being DFA'd, the Rangers hitting the "dog days," and Joe Nathan's usage the rest of the way.

The Rangers' website notes hit on Nelson Cruz leaving the game yesterday with back stiffness, Rafael Palmeiro's opinion on Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds and the Hall, and Mike Napoli returning to the lineup.
