2013 Texas Rangers hitters with runners in scoring position

How did the Rangers' hitters do with runners in scoring position in 2013?

USA TODAY Sports

I thought might have done this post earlier this month, but I did see it when I searched, so I guess I didn't do it...

If I did, please accept my apologies for the duplication...

The Rangers had a team OPS of 735 overall in 2013.  With RISP, that dropped to 691.  Which helps explain a little bit of the problem in regards to scoring runs...

Other than Nelson Cruz, no one had a particularly good year with runners in scoring position, and several players -- Elvis Andrus, David Murphy, Mitch Moreland and Adrian Beltre -- were particularly disappointing.
