Saturday morning Rangers news and links

Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

That game was annoying.

Jeff Wilson's game story talks about how what looked like a really good situation for the Rangers after three innings came apart after a disastrous fourth, which Ron Washington said "broke our back."

The game story at the Rangers website talks about the Rangers' 6-5 loss not only involving them blowing a 3-0 lead, but also dropping out of first place in the A.L. West.

Todd Wills has his Rapid Reaction at the ESPN Dallas blog.

Evan Grant writes on yesterday's game about Matt Garza being unable to hold an early lead.

Lyle Spencer writes an article that suggests Adrian Beltre should be the A.L. MVP.  Beltre has been great, but much like last year, there are only two players with a legitimate claim to being the league MVP -- Mike Trout and Miguel Cabrera.

Wilson has a story on Derek Holland, who Wilson writes is putting up his best season.

Grant has a story on the Rangers investing big in their international scouting, and how that is paying off big dividends.

The S-T's notes talk about Nick Tepesch starting on Sunday, Robbie Ross no longer being an option in critical situations against lefties, and Engel Beltre batting out of order on Thursday.

The Rangers' website notes talk about Tepesch, Ross, Elvis Andrus returning to the lineup, and the Rangers' hitting with runners in scoring position.
