Good morning. Today is the first day of Guilder Rodriguez's life with a Major League batting average.

Watch this:

Calvin Watkins provided the Rapid Reaction to the Rangers' 4-3 win which featured the first career hit and first career game-winning RBI of Rodriguez's decade long wait at a big league career.

Dave Sessions writes that Guilder helped navigate the Rangers to an emotional win as his father was in the stands to watch his son play in America for the first time since 2004. He picked a good night.

Jeff Wilson writes that Guilder was the hero for a night and that night happened to also be one where the Rangers would clinch a 100 loss season reprieve. Derek Holland also enjoyed another solid start and the Rangers stayed within a half game of the Diamondbacks in the race for the top pick in the 2015 draft.

Anthony Andro's game story focuses, of course, on Guilder Rodriguez who called the night the second best of life behind the birth of his daughters.

Sessions notes that Rodriguez's magical night was made even more special by having two of his latest prominent minor league proteges -- Luis Sardinas and Rougned Odor -- playing the infield with him.

Wilson has more on yesterday's news that Jurickson Profar is still broken.

Stefan Stevenson has notes on Lisalverto Bonilla earning another start, Tim Bogar orchestrating Guilder's night, Nick Martinez set for the season finale, and other items.

Mike Oz of the Big League Stew blogs about MLB putting together a council of stodgy old men to figure out why baseball games are a few minutes longer than they were 50 years ago.

Lastly, MLB.com's Adam Lichtenstein previews tonight's game between the Rangers and Astros which will hopefully see the Rangers return to their tank efforts now that they've gotten Guilder Rodriguez's night out of the way.
