After 125 games in 2010, the Rangers were 71-54 and 8.5 games up in the A.L. West.

After 125 games last year, the Rangers were 72-53 and 6 games up in the A.L. West.

After 125 games this year, the Rangers are 74-51 and 6 games up in the A.L. West.

Drew Davison's game story has Adrian Beltre saying that the highlight from last night's 8-0 forkstabbing of the Twins wasn't him hitting for the cycle, but was Matt Harrison's sterling outing.

T.R. Sullivan's game story talks about Matt Harrison taking a no-hit bid into the 7th. I thought, after the David Murphy diving catch, that Harrison was going to do it, too.

Jeff Caplan has the Rapid Reaction to yesterday's game.

Evan Grant has his thoughts on last night's game, with quotes from Harrison.

Sullivan has a story on Adrian Beltre hitting for the cycle.

Caplan writes about the strength of the Rangers' 3-4 combination.

Grant has a rundown on the current A.L. playoff situation.

The S-T's notes talk about Roy Oswalt's new and unfamiliar role as a swingman, Mike Napoli's return being delayed, Michael Young going on paternity leave, and the Rangers having not made a decision on Jurickson Profar.

Sullivan's notes talk about Napoli catching Derek Holland's bullpen session, Jon Daniels and Ron Washington meeting about September callups, Luis Hernandez getting called up instead of Profar with Young going on paternity leave, and Josh Hamilton not holding a grudge against Scott Diamond after Diamond threw at his head.
