Good morning.

Ha ha ha.

Do ho ho. AJM's Twitter jinx game is too strong.

Katy Clarke recaps the Rangers' mammoth 5-3 series-opening win over the Houston Astros to pull to within a half of a game in the AL West.

Anthony Andro's game story focuses on Mitch Moreland and Prince Fielder delivering in dramatic fashion in a tense game for Texas.

Jeff Wilson writes that the Rangers threw their best at the Astros and came away with a huge win to climb to the nearest they've been to first place since April 17.

T.R. Sullivan writes that the Rangers are having fun with a playoff atmosphere in September at The Ballpark.

Jean-Jacques Taylor checks in with more on Prince's biggest hit thus far as a Texas Ranger.

Evan Grant writes to explain how the Mike Napoli/Mitch Moreland/Prince Fielder triumvirate continued their experiment against left-handers.

Richard Justice recaps the latest chapter of the Battle for the Silver Boot as the Rangers won a game that mirrored their entire season.

Jeff Sullivan looks to figure out just how the Rangers are doing this even though all statistical evidence shows that they shouldn't be gaining on Houston (Yes, the Rangers are finally that team).

Sullivan of the T.R. variety has quotes from Cole Hamels who wasn't satisfied with his outing last night.

*SPIT TAKE* Mac Engel praises Jon Daniels, prays that Randy Galloway still hasn't figured out how to use a computer.

Levi Weaver knows that you love the Texas Rangers and you love sports underdogs which works out great for you because the Rangers are the underdogs this year.

Stefan Stevenson offers up some notes on Derek Holland getting bumped up to tonight's game, playoff tickets, Chi Chi's role, and an honor for Adrian Beltre.

MLB.com's Chandler Rome previews tonight's game between the Rangers and Astros with Holland going for Texas against Collin McHugh.

Finally, Dave Cameron offers a mea culpa for Fangraphs not accounting for #NeverEverQuit in its evaluations.

Have a nice day.
