Monday Morning Texas Rangers Update

The latest news and notes on the American League leading Texas Rangers

Ray Carlin-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Levi Weaver recaps the Rangers' 3-2 series-sweeping victory over the Seattle Mariners yesterday.

Evan Grant writes that Elvis Andrus' baseball instincts helped the Rangers steal one from Seattle.

Jeff Wilson reacts to the sweep and how the most noteworthy players from yesterday happen to also be the most polarizing players on the team.

Ryan Posner's game story focuses on Derek Holland having perhaps his best outing of the season to help Texas extend their division lead to three games.

Grant writes that Prince Fielder isn't happy about being benched, but then again, what else is he supposed to say?

Wilson has quotes from Fielder where he gives his honest opinion about getting "unplugged" by skipper Banister.

Posner writes about the Rangers winning basically all the games at The Ballpark. Texas hasn't lost a series in Arlington since the first series of the season.

Richard Justice writes about the Rangers and Astros once again going at it as Houston has gone 21-13 since the end of April.

Stefan Stevenson has notes on Houston coming to town, Colby Lewis' dominance of the Astros, and various injury updates.'s Richard Dean previews tonight's series opener with Lewis taking the mound for Texas against Mike Fiers of Houston.

Finally, here's an article from ESPN Deportes by Carlos A. Nava about how Nomar Mazara is "rompiendo expectativas."

Have a nice day!
