Thursday a.m. Rangers things

Five wins in a row, and first place in the West.  Not bad.

Scott Feldman, who the organization has been so desperately trying to keep out of the rotation, was the star yesterday, with 6 innings of very solid work against the A's.  Jeff Wilson says that Feldman is staying in the rotation, with Kris Benson going into a long relief role.

Wilson also has some notes up that include an update on Josh Hamilton, and an interesting stat on Ian Kinsler -- he has the third-worst road batting average in the league so far this year.

Chris Davis is optimistic that he's found the mechanical problem with his swing that has been causing him problems, and he and Rudy Jaramillo worked on fixing it prior to yesterday's game.  Davis was 1 for 3 with only 1 K yesterday, so maybe he's getting things turned around.

Brandon McCarthy is pitching today, and his goal is to get to the 7th inning, something he hasn't done yet this year.
