Great game yesterday.  Alexi Ogando looked shaky early, but then settled down and gave the Rangers 7 2/3 innings, with no runs allowed after the homer given up to the second hitter of the game.  The bats got going, Detroit played some clownball to give up the lead, Yorvit Torrealba hit well and ran through a stop sign, an umpire made a terrible call that ended up not mattering, and Rangers fans everywhere were happy.

Anthony Andro's game story talks about Ogando neutralizing a red-hot Detroit offense that had put up 38 hits in the previous two games.

Richard Durrett has his reactions to yesterday's game up at ESPN Dallas.

Joey Matches talks about Ogando, and the possibility of him winning the Cy Young Award.

Anthony Andro writes about the decision yesterday to let new hitting coach Thad Bosley go, noting that Bosley had communication issues with the players, and noted in particular that he was hard on young players like Elvis Andrus, Julio Borbon, and Mitch Moreland.

Durrett has a story on the departure, as well, with quotes from some of the players, saying that ultimately, Bosley didn't mesh with the clubhouse and the team's style.  Durrett also has a story with some quotes from new hitting coach Scott Coolbaugh.

Evan Grant has a blog post about the Bosley firing.

Ranger first rounder Zach Cone talks about the team's decision to draft paralyzed teammate Johnathan Taylor.
