Good morning. How rad is it that Colby Lewis is performing as top-tier starter again, at age 35, as a medical marvel, all while showing complete devotion to the Rangers the entire time? If you answered "the most rad," you'd be correct.

ESPN actually let someone cover the Rangers game so Randy Jennings provides the Rapid Reaction to the Rangers' 8-2 win over the Kansas City Royals.

Stefan Stevenson recaps the win which saw Tommy Field make his Ranger debut as Texas announced that they are not yet ready to give up on 2015.

Jennings notes that Texas native Field collected his first big league home run for the team he grew up rooting for with everyone he loves in The Ballpark to see it to prove that there will always be someone happier than you.

Evan Grant writes about the re-emergence of Colby Lewis from experimental hip surgery recipient to quality member of the rotation once again.

Anthony Andro recaps the win and focuses on Lewis collecting his team-tying third win of the season after allowing only his second run in May.

T.R. Sullivan also writes about Lewis' sterling performance so far this year which includes this quote from Colby on how he's getting it done:

"I don't read much into it," Lewis said. "You know me, I just go out and have fun and do my deal."

Sullivan and Todd Wills covered the game and note that Adrian Beltre hit his 399th career home run to move to a tie for 52nd all-time.

Grant writes about Keone Kela's propensity to mutter profanity while on the mound to pump himself up.

Gil LeBreton gets to expense a trip to Nashville to check in with Josh Hamilton playing for the Round Rock Express. Yesterday, before going 0-4 at the plate, Hamilton autographed a baby and we know this because Josh Hamilton's life is different.

Sullivan previews tonight's contest between Ace Martinez and former Ranger Edinson Volquez as the Rangers try to win consecutive games at home for the first time this year.

Lastly, former radio host Bryan Dolgin writes about a time in Tampa when things got awkward between him and the then-hitting coach who would quickly be a former hitting coach.

Have a nice day.
