Good morning. I missed last night's game with a migraine but I can't tell if that's a good thing or not looking at the box score. On one hand, the Rangers came back from 7-0 down with a dramatic two-out RBI double from Adrian Beltre in the 9th. On the other hand, they lost a half inning later on a walk-off.
Levi Weaver recaps the heartbreaker in Colorado as the Rangers fell 8-7.
Jeff Wilson's game story focuses on the Rangers' comeback attempt that was all for naught -- though, anecdotally, it was probably nice to see the team rally rather than lay down and die.
T.R. Sullivan recaps the loss with Tanner Scheppers playing the role of goat after allowing the winning run in the 9th.
Wilson has a piece on the reemergence of Rougned Odor after a tough April. In a little over a month of games since he returned on June 15, Odor is hitting .362 with four dingers. And, of course, the first of many big league brouhahas he'll be credited with in his career.
Speaking of that tussle in Houston, Evan Grant has Prince Fielder's side of the story as to why he stepped in when Roogie and Astros' catcher Hank Conger began exchanging words.
Wilson has notes which include ones on Adrian Beltre's wrist not getting much better, Prince Fielder playing first, and Matt Harrison with a bat.

MLB.com's Dargan Southard (best name since Master Tesfatsion) previews tonight's game between the Rockies and Rangers with Harrison taking the mound for Texas.
Lastly, Kate Morrison writes that she may have been wrong about Nick Williams who, by the way, hit the game-winning home run for Frisco last night.
Have a nice day.
