Good morning.

The Rangers came back from down two in the 9th inning in yesterday's Cactus League game against the Giants. Levi Weaver has the recap of the Rangers' fourth win of the spring.

Doug Miller writes that Ryan Rua was the star of the game and Ronald Guzman was the hero with the game-winning hit.

Jeff Wilson's Surprise Five details the goings on in camp on Monday and the media's hatred for extra spring innings.

Miller notes that Colby Lewis' second spring start was very Colbyish and that Ian Desmond is still looking for his first fly ball in left field.

The DMN has some excerpts from Evan Grant on Buster Olney's podcast where they discussed the Desmond signing and the Rangers' stacked bullpen.

Wilson profiles bullpen newcomer Tony Barnette who comes to Texas as a 32-year-old rookie after being big in Japan.

Miller writes about the differences between last spring and this spring for Joey Gallo as he works on being patient at the plate.

The Leonys Martin/Tom Wilhelmsen trade added a new element to the Rangers vs Mariners as Andrew Simon writes about players going to division rivals.

Stefan Stevenson has a collection of notes including Prince Fielder getting his first spring hit, A.J. Griffin feeling good after his debut on Sunday, and Yu Darvish ramping up his rehab.

MLB is having Snapchat Day on Friday and naturally Derek Holland is excited.

Lastly, Michael Young took a walk in JD's shoes and has gone full corporate suit.

Have a great day.
