7 in a row, 11 out of their last 13. The Rangers have the best record in the majors, and their +97 run differential is not only the best in the majors, it is 39 runs better than the St. Louis Cardinals, who have the second-best run differential in the majors.

Jeff Wilson's game story focuses on Roy Oswalt's Ranger debut, with Oswalt being very happy with his command yesterday.

T.R. Sullivan's game story is also Oswalt-centric, with Oswalt's only complaint about his outing being that he gave up too many 0-2 hits.

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

Behind the paywall, Grant writes that the Rangers' offense isn't "firing right," but it doesn't matter as long as the team keeps getting quality starts.

The S-T's notes talk about Mitch Moreland going to the disabled list, Derek Holland throwing a bullpen, and Michael Kirkman no longer needing any treatment for his skin cancer.

Sullivan's notes hit on Holland's throwing session, Josh Hamilton's movie, and the Rangers pitchers who could be voted into the All Star Game.
