Monday morning Rangers stuff

Anthony Andro's game story has some quotes from Ron Washington about how pleased he is with the starting pitching and the team's performance on this road trip, and includes Vicente Padilla channeling his inner Nuke LaLoosh:

"I have been throwing my pitches and they have been swinging at them," Padilla said. "The most important thing is for the team to win. If I pitch good, that’s fine, but the most important thing is to get the win. I was keeping the balls low and my fastball was moving a lot."

Evan Grant notes that the team ERA has dropped to 4.90 on the season, and talks about how the good pitching is leading to guys feeding off of each other.

Chris Davis switched to a heavier bat yesterday, and was 2-4 with a homer and a double.  Davis said he made a similar switch last season when he was struggling, in an effort to slow himself down and keep his hands back.

Inside Corner has the copy from a John Blake press release on Josh Hamilton's rehab assignment up.  Sounds like he should be activated on Tuesday.
