Good morning. The Rangers haven't won consecutive games this season and haven't won a series yet but 7-11 looks a heck of a lot better than 6-12.

Jeff Wilson recaps the Rangers avoiding a sweep in Anaheim yesterday with a 5-4 win in 11 innings.

T.R. Sullivan zeroes in on Nick Martinez and Neftali Feliz coming through on the mound in the Rangers' comeback win.

Evan Grant writes that the Rangers' offense has been terrible this season but they found a way to score enough late to beat the Angels and soon Josh Hamilton will be on the way.

On the Hamilton front, Wilson writes that the trade should be announced tomorrow and that Hamilton could be back with the Rangers in as soon as 10 days or so.

Mirroring the news that when the Rangers traded for Yovani Gallardo they waited at their own pace to make an official announcement, Sullivan writes that Hamilton should be a Ranger before game time tonight despite everyone knowing about this thing for days now.

Bob Nightengale has a piece on Hamilton's impending return to Texas and calls it Hambone's final chance for redemption.

Anthony Andro recaps the weekend series against Anaheim and looks ahead to the series with Seattle that begins tonight.'s Josh Liebeskind previews tonight's series opener with the Rangers getting their first look at Taijuan Walker as a starter while Gallardo is set to take the mound for Texas.

Grant writes that Leonys Martin and Jeff Banister continue to have "dialogues" regarding Martin's recent baserunning miscues.

Sullivan notes that Banister was ejected from Sunday's game for the first time in his managerial career for arguing a pretty lame replay call of fan interference that went against the Rangers.

Lastly, instead of crying to the umps about your awful fans, Anaheim, here's how you deal with potential fan interference:

Have a nice day.
