Texas heads to Toronto to start a three game series against the Blue Jays today, before returning home for a ten game homestand that starts on Monday. This series wraps up a stretch where the Rangers have played 13 of 16 on the road, and they are 7-6 so far in that bloc of games after yesterday's 10-6 victory against the Yankees.
Drew Davison writes in his game story that yesterday's victory showed the Rangers' resiliency.
T.R. Sullivan's game story hits on Michael Kirkman coming up big in a key situation to help lead the Rangers to a win.
Behind the paywall, Evan Grant writes about Ron Washington having faith in David Murphy and Craig Gentry.
Also behind the paywall, Kevin Sherrington has a column on the Rangers' set in New York.
Anthony Andro writes that heightened expectations seem to have led to fans being hyper-critical of a Ranger team that has a big lead in the A.L. West, and is one game behind the Yankees for the best record in the A.L.
The S-T's notes talk about Ian Kinsler getting a day off, the Rangers' catching situation, and Yu Darvish.
Sullivan's notes touch on Mike Napoli's absence, Kinsler's "heavy bat," Mike Olt starting in right field, and keeping Joe Nathan sharp.
