Wednesday a.m. Rangers stuff

Alexi Ogando.  He was something else last night.  I don't think you could have asked for anything more out of him than 90 pitches in six shutout innings...even against the hapless Mariner offense, that's impressive.

And of course, the Rangers are 5-0 to start the season, the first time they've won their first five games since 1996.

Jeff Wilson's game story sings the praises of Ogando.  Evan Grant has his post-game thoughts and reactions.  Todd Wills says, in his game story, that Ogando may make this temporary position a permanent one.

Richard Durrett writes about Alexi Ogando's first start as a professional.

Julio Borbon talks about his key catch last night, with Ron Washington praising Borbon's play so far this season.

Grant writes about the importance of Borbon to the team's hot start.

Washington says the key to the Rangers' success this year is their pitching and defense.

Gil Lebreton is impressed with the way the Rangers' young starting pitchers have begun the season.

The S-T's notes include stuff on Michael Young's debut at first base and Josh Hamilton's slow start.

The Rangers' website notes talk about Elvis Andrus's impressive play to rob Ichiro of a single in the first and Nelson Cruz's red-hot April.
