Sunday a.m. Rangers stuff

Rangers win, Angels win.  Rangers still a half-game up on Anaheim.

Jeff Wilson writes that Chris Ray saved the Rangers, and Neftali Feliz, by getting a couple of outs despite coming in to a bases loaded, one out situation with just a two run lead.

T.R. Sullivan's game story talks about Scott Feldman's outing, giving up a lot of base runners and having guys in scoring position all game, but managing to keep the Brewers off the score board.  Sullivan also has a story on the bottom of the 9th, with Ron Washington saying that Feliz's lack of command meant the Rangers had to get someone else in there.

Wilson's notes include talk about Rich Harden to the d.l. and Alexi Ogando's promotion, with Harden saying he wants to stay off the d.l., but that, with the way he's been pitching, the move makes sense.

Evan Grant says that Ranger officials insist Harden's glut strain is a real injury, not a fabrication, but regardless, the Rangers had to do something because Harden wasn't getting guys out and wasn't giving the Rangers innings.

Sullivan's story on the Harden/Ogando transactions says that the Rangers haven't decided who will start on Saturday in Houston, but that the leading candidate is Matt Harrison.

The S-T has a Q&A with Daniels, addressing how the ownership situation is impacting the team, Ogando's coming to the majors, and the draft.

Sullivan has some notes up that include the news that the Rangers are actively shopping for starting pitching help.

Anthony Andro has several items today relating to Michael Young's charge to become the Rangers' all-time leading hitter.  There's a piece with Young's thoughts on five of his most memorable hits, some quotes from teammates,
and how unique Young is in that he's spent his whole career on one team.
