Good morning. Who had the Rangers beating Chris Archer and Jake Odorizzi but losing to Nate Karns and Matt Andriese? Nobody? Cool beans.
T.R. Sullivan writes about Wandy Rodriguez breaking the club record for consecutive hitters retired at 34 straight. And he did it with a hurting back.
Evan Grant provides a batter-by-batter breakdown of all 34 of Wandy's consecutive outs that broke Ken Hill's 1996 record of 31 straight.
Sullivan recaps the Rangers' 2-1 win over the Rays to split the series in Tampa with Adrian Beltre driving in both Ranger runs in the win.
Anthony Andro breaks down the weekend series against the Rays which saw the Rangers extend a winning streak to four on Thursday before ending their week long road trip with a 5-2 record on Sunday.
Nick Cole writes in the Dallas Morning News about Josh Hamilton's return to baseball action with the Round Rock Express yesterday.
Gil LeBreton has more on Hamilton's first game back as Hambone went 1-3 at the plate against former Cy Young winner Barry Zito.
Sullivan notes that Neftali Feliz found his old fastball yesterday as he reached 98 MPH while collecting his fifth save of the season.
Jeff Wilson has notes on the Rangers honoring Mother's Day yesterday, Keone Kela's heavy workload, and Prince Fielder's lack of an ego.
Kela now leads the Rangers in wins with three, but on Lone Star Ball's Facebook page we asked which starter would end up leading the team in wins. I imagine Wandy Rodriguez would get a few more votes after yesterday.
Lastly, Jeffrey Flanagan previews tonight's series opener between the Kansas City Royals and Rangers with Colby Lewis taking on Danny Duffy.
Have a nice day.
