Thursday a.m. Rangers things

With last night's 3-2 win, the Rangers have reached the 90 win mark for just the 5th time in team history.  Only two teams in Ranger history -- the 1999 Rangers and the 1977 Rangers -- have won more games than the 2011 team has won so far this season.

T.R. Sullivan's game story focuses on the two big eighth inning home runs from Ian Kinsler and Josh Hamilton that turned a Ranger loss into a Ranger win.

Richard Durrett has his thoughts on last night's game at the ESPN Dallas blog.

Behind the paywall, Evan Grant writes that C.J. Wilson made history last night.

Durrett writes that C.J. Wilson was dealing with a blister and an elevated pitch count last night.

Grant quotes C.J. as saying he got a little too "amped up" last night.

Jeff Wilson writes that Adrian Beltre has been dominant with the bat since his return from the disabled list.

The S-T's notes talk about Andres Blanco dealing with a bad back that will keep him from hitting lefthanded the rest of the season, Nelson Cruz waiting until this weekend to play in the field, and Ron Washington refusing to talk about the playoff rotation.

The Rangers website notes talk about Endy Chavez's season, Nelson Cruz, and the playoff roster situation.
