Wednesday morning Rangers stuff

Ronald Martinez

Wednesday morning Rangers news and links

Texas won last night, but Tampa beat the Yankees, and Cleveland had a walk-off victory with a Jason Giambi two out, two run homer, which means the Rangers remain two back of the Rays and one back of the Indians with five games to go.  The Rangers have pulled out of the early September tailspin, but they are running out of time now.

Jeff Wilson's game story talks about how the Ranger players were watching the out-of-town scoreboard while battling the Astros yesterday.

T.R. Sullivan writes in his game story that the Ranger bullpen came up big yesterday, logging 3.2 shutout innings, including one huge out from Jason Frasor in the 8th inning that preserved the Rangers' one run lead.

Anthony Andro's game story talks about the Rangers staying in the Wild Card race with their 3-2 win yesterday.

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

Evan Grant writes that, with the season down to crunch time, Ron Washington really trusts only three of his relievers -- Neal Cotts, Tanner Scheppers, and Joe Nathan.

Grant also did a chat session yesterday in which he answered a whole bunch of questions.

The S-T's notes talk about Geovany Soto and Yu Darvish working well together, Martin Perez maturing, and Yu Darvish and Derek Holland each reaching 200 innings so far this season.

Sullivan's notes hit on Adrian Beltre homering and then getting hit, Ron Washington liking Geovany Soto's attitude, Holland reaching 200 innings, and the Rangers drawing over 3,000,000 fans again.
