Saturday morning Rangers news and links

That was a weird game last night.

T.R. Sullivan's game story is all about the "phantom double play," as he refers to it, where Justin Grimm caught a ball intended for Mitch Moreland, but the umpire thought Moreland caught it and called the runner out at first. Sullivan has quotes from Grimm and Moreland about the play.

Jeff Wilson's game story also talks about the double play that really wasn't, which bailed out Grimm, who was struggling early in the game.

Todd Wills has his Rapid Reaction at the ESPN Dallas blog.

Evan Grant has a story about Justin Grimm relying on his sinking fastball to get ground balls when he gets into trouble.

Wilson has a story on how minor league call-ups Ross Wolf and Neal Cotts have contributed this week to the Rangers' success.

Sullivan's notes talk about Martin Perez starting on Monday in one of the games of the doubleheader, the status of Nick Tepesch and Alexi Ogando, Mitch Moreland hitting 2nd, Mike Olt resuming baseball activities, and Ross Wolf being the oldest starter the Rangers have had this season.

The S-T's notes talk about Joe Saunders yesterday breaking a streak of righthanders starting against the Rangers and various issues relating to pitchers with Texas.
