Thursday a.m. Rangers things

And the Rangers are back to 10 games above .500, after last night's 10th inning win.  Still 2 games up on Anaheim.

Anthony Andro writes that it was redemption for David Murphy last night, who came through in the 10th after struggling earlier in the game and not getting a bunt down in the 6th.

Jeff Miller writes that, although Pudge Rodriguez was honored last night, it was Jarrod Saltalamacchia who starred behind the plate, with a homer and a couple of big plays in the 9th that kept the score tied.

Salty's strong game comes on the heels of the news that Ron Washington plans on getting backup Taylor Teagarden more playing time.

Richard Durrett says that Murphy is still probably a fourth outfielder.

Jim Reeves has a column up on Ruben Sierra and the steroids issue, with Reeves defending Sierra against suggestions that he used PEDs.

Frankie Francisco pitches for Frisco on a rehab assignment tonight, and hopes to immediately start closing again once he is activated.
