We kick off May with the Rangers sitting alone in first place in the A.L. West, with the third best record in the American League.

Jeff Wilson's game story says that yesterday was "Back to Basics Day" for the Rangers, as the offense focused on having good at bats and Colby Lewis focused on his fastball command.

Evan Grant writes that Lewis had success by focusing on his fastball.

T.R. Sullivan's game story focuses on the bats busting out against Oakland starter Brett Anderson.

Richard Durrett says that Matt Harrison is looking to bounce back today from his awful outing earlier in the week.

Sullivan's notesdiscuss Ryan Tucker's impressive debut and Neftali Feliz and Tommy Hunter both throwing well while working to come back from disabled list stints.

The S-T's notes talk about pitchers rehabbing, the Rangers' recent defensive issues, and Matt Harrison hitting the books to get back on track.
