This is four straight series the Rangers have won, and this afternoon they go for their second consecutive sweep. And Scott Feldman finally picked up a win.

Jeff Wilson writes in his game story that, while Feldman may be heading back to the bullpen now, with Roy Oswalt possibly joining the team this week, if he is heading to the bullpen, he's leaving the rotation on a high note.

The game story at the Rangers' website talks about how a Ranger lineup that hasn't been clicking put up some big numbers yesterday.

Evan Grant has his observations from last night's win at the DMN Rangers blog.

Sara Trotto has her "Rapid Reaction" from last night at the ESPN Dallas blog.

Grant writes that Mitch Moreland, who left yesterday's game in the second inning after grabbing his hamstring while trying to beat out a double play ball, will have an MRI today but is expected to go to the disabled list. Grant writes that the Rangers will not make a move with Moreland until Friday, with a pitcher, likely Roy Oswalt, expected to replace Moreland on the roster.

Behind the paywall, Kevin Sherrington writes that some awful moves early in Jon Daniels' tenure helped him become one of the best g.m.s in baseball.

Wilson has a story on Dave Barnett being evaluated after Monday's weird episode during the game which has resulted in him being out of the booth until at least Friday.

The S-T's notes talk about Derek Holland hoping to be in the rotation by the end of the month, Yu Darvish's command, and Brad Hawpe being released from AA Frisco.

The Rangers' website notes hit on Darvish, Josh Hamilton returning to the lineup, Moreland's injury, and Martin Perez.
