Saturday morning Rangers news and links

Dilip Vishwanat

The Rangers won yesterday. That's a good thing.

Jeff Wilson's game story talks about how Derek Holland had a rough start again last night, though he battled back after looking early like he wasn't going to make it five innings to give the Rangers seven innings of work.

T.R. Sullivan's game story focuses on the Rangers' 9th inning rally, and Nelson Cruz's two run single to drive in the winning runs.

Todd Wills has his Rapid Reaction up at the ESPN Dallas website.

Evan Grant offers up his thoughts from last night's game.

Gil Lebreton has a column on the Rangers returning to St. Louis for the first time since the 2011 World Series, and it includes quotes from Lance Berkman, who says that he occasionally jokes with his teammates about having beaten them in 2011. Adrian Beltre, apparently, doesn't think it is funny.

Kevin Sherrington also has a column on the Rangers returning to St. Louis.

Wills has this week's Stock Report, looking at who is up and who is down with the Rangers this week.

Grant writes that Shelby Miller starting for St. Louis today is a reminder of a draft gone awry in 2009.

The S-T's notes talk about Lance Berkman getting a cortisone shot in his sore right knee, Leonys Martin starting his 10th straight game, and Jurickson Profar learning a lesson after his soft throw on Thursday allowed Brandon Moss to reach on an infield single.

Sullivan's notes talk about Berkman's return to St. Louis, Leonys getting regular playing time, Ian Kinsler tying the Ranger team stolen base record, and Martin Perez wanting to stay in the major leagues after today's start.
