Good morning. Josh Hamilton returned and did his best to stay out of the way as the real story on the Rangers right now is the fact that Prince Fielder is all the way back.

MLB.com's Jordan Bastian and August Fagerstrom write up the game story for the Rangers latest win. Texas beat the Cleveland Indians 10-8 for their sixth straight victory.

Stefan Stevenson writes about Hamilton's return in Cleveland on a day when Fielder continued his blazing hot hitting with a home run and three RBI.

Katy Clarke recaps the win which also saw Elvis Andrus collect his 1,000th career hit against the same team he collected hit No. 1 way back in 2009.

Fagerstrom notes that the No Roles Bullpen continued to get the job done during this winning streak with seven innings of one-run ball yesterday.

Anthony Castrovince profiles Hamilton the day after he made his return to the Texas Rangers in what can only be described as a surreal moment.

Speaking of the surreal, the day that Hamilton put on a Rangers' jersey again, photos were taken of Ron Washington back in Oakland gear. The last time Washington wore a green A's shirt before yesterday, it was 2005 and Hamilton was beginning his first week of sobriety as a troubled prospect for the Devil Rays.

Castrovince writes on Sports on Earth about the Rangers turning things around in May after a disastrous April that had everyone leaving them for dead.

Finally, on Lone Star Ball Facebook, we asked what you anticipated from Josh Hamilton in his first game back and no one foresaw him hitting a tapper to the mound that scored the winning run on an error so baseball once again remains undefeated at being predictable.

Have a nice day.
