Terrible outing from the Rangers offense, which was shut out by Blake Beavan and a couple of M's relievers.
The Rangers are still four games up on Oakland, and the Magic Number is now 8, but their lead over the Yankees for the best record in the A.L. is down to just 1.
The S-T's game story is now behind a paywall, so I can't tell you what it has to say.
Taylor Soper has his "Rapid Reaction" at the ESPN Dallas site.
Evan Grant has his thoughts on last nights game at the DMN Rangers blog.
Behind the paywall, Grant writes that the Rangers need to work out the kinks in their offense.
The Rangers' website notes talk about Ron Washington still having confidence in Alexi Ogando, Adrian Beltre possibly needing surgery after the season, Mike Napoli's playing time, and Craig Gentry starting while Hamilton is out.
The S-T's notes are also behind a paywall, so no telling what they are.
