The Rangers currently have a six game lead on the Angels, who are sitting in last place.

T.R. Sullivan's game story talks about Mike Napoli busting out of his early-season slump to carry the Rangers' offense yesterday.

Jeff Wilson's game story marvels that Napoli was allowed to face lefty reliever Franklin Morales in the 8th inning, setting the stage for Napoli's two run double.

Evan Grant has some post-game thoughts after last night's win.

Bryan Dolgin has his Rapid Reaction to the game at the ESPN Dallas blog.

Behind the paywall, Grant talks about how a key Bobby Valentine decision helped fuel the Rangers' victory.

Grant also has some "musings" on the Rangers, which includes a suggestion on a Josh Hamilton contract extension.

Sullivan's notes talk about Pudge Rodriguez retiring as a Ranger, Yu Darvish needing to get lefthanded hitters out, and the Rangers starting to draw more walks.

The S-T's notes talk about Michael Young sitting yesterday, Darvish's next start, and Napoli heating up.
