The Rangers have now won 6 of their last 8, and go for the sweep today against the Astros...

Drew Davison's game story focuses on Justin Grimm, who was making his major league debut and picked up the win with an impressive performance yesterday.

Anthony Andro writes in his game story that Grimm tried to remind himself that it was just a game, the same as always, only with a better offense and defense supporting him.

The game story at the Rangers website also praises Grimm's performance in his first start.

Nolan Ryan was impressed by Grimm's performance last night.

Davison writes that Martin Perez's inconsistency this year cost him an opportunity to start yesterday.

The S-T's notes talk about Josh Hamilton, who is expected to be back in the lineup on Monday, and the roster moves the Rangers made to bring Justin Grimm up.

The Rangers website notes hit on the bullpen getting some rest lately, Hamilton's situation, and Yoshinori Tateyama being sent down.
