The Rangers might have lost their first series of the season, but they still went 8-4 against the Red Sox/Tigers/Yankees/Rays. I'd take that any day.

T.R. Sullivan writes about the game from last night. The Rangers did not win.

Richard Durrett offers his rapid reactions to the Rangers 5-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays.

Jeff Wilson recaps the game while focusing on Derek Holland struggling a bit for the second consecutive start against what could be potential playoff opponents.

Keith Whitmire has a piece on the Fox Sports website about Holland still being "a work in progress."

David Stein of ESPN Dallas also writes about Holland's tough first few innings last night. This was apparently the first time Holland has lost consecutive starts since August 2010.

The other big story from this game, as Gerry Fraley writes, was Josh Hamilton exiting after two innings with back spasms.

Durrett quotes Hamilton as saying he doesn't think the back issue a big deal and expects to play tonight in Toronto.

In honor of Ron Washington celebrating his 60th birthday yesterday, Gil Lebreton wrote a piece on The Philosophy of Wash.

Sullivan's Notebook covers the Rangers embarking on a ten game road trip, David Murphy's defense, Mitch Moreland's offense, Koji Uehara's walkless streak, and other notes.

Wilson has notes on Hamilton's health and Michael Young being impressed with the crowds at The Ballpark.

Finally, Fraley writes that the Dutchstache might soon be waxed.
