In the last game of the post-post-Hamilton era, the Rangers reeled off their season-high fifth straight win. Texas is now 15-10 on the road, have won consecutive series for the first time this season, and are now in sole possession of third place in the West.

It was fun watching the Rangers run roughshod over the Yankees on national TV.

Player of the Game: Prince Fielder is making the WAR stat look dumb and awful this season after murdering the crap out of the ball all season and hitting .358. Tonight Prince was 3-5 with a double, two RBI, and a line drive single that hit off the top of the wall in right.
