Jeff Wilson has reactions to the latest win by the Rangers as Texas continues to pile on the series wins. The Rangers are now an absurd 15-4-1 in the 20 different series they've played as we barrel toward the halfway mark of the season.
T.R. Sullivan's game story focuses on the final play of the game, and why not? Nomar Mazara throwing a laser to nail Robinson Cano at second base to end the game was the superlative capper on a satisfying series for Texas.
Evan Grant writes that the Rangers return to Oakland with something special going on after winning seven consecutive series since they were swept in Oakland just under a month ago.
In addition to winning what seems like his 100th game already for Texas, Cole Hamels reached the 2,000 K mark for his career on Sunday with a strikeout of Leonys Martin.
Tracy Ringolsby writes that Cole Hamels wanted to become a Texas Ranger and it's paying off for him and the team.
As Grant writes, believe it or not, the Rangers could get even better as they have Shin-Soo Choo once again waiting in the wings to return from injury perhaps as soon as tonight.
Sullivan writes that despite all the good that's happening with the Rangers right now, they still need help in the bullpen.
Finally, among Wilson's notes is the announcement that Cesar Ramos will indeed make the start tonight in place of Yu Darvish.
Have a great day.
