With the win, the Rangers have assured themselves of a .500 or better season for a franchise best fifth straight season

See, baseball is this weird sport where Yu Darvish, Matt Garza, and Derek Holland can combine to allow 19 runs during a three game losing streak while Martin Perez and Nick Tepesch can combine to allow 3 runs during the most recent Ranger wins. Happily, one of those wins came today.

The Rangers got the Jon Daniels Four Run Theory back on track and ended a distressing trip through California with a big win.

Player of the Game: Alex Rios is carrying the Rangers offense right now. Today he went 2-4 with a walk, a home run, and two RBI.
