Good morning.

Levi Weaver recaps the Rangers' 6-5 walk-off win over the Houston Astros as they upped their lead in the AL West to four games.

Jeff Wilson reacts to the win as the Rangers matched the '96, '98, '99, and '13 teams for the best record in franchise history through 57 games.

T.R. Sullivan's game story focuses on Sam Dyson mowing down Houston's 2-3-4 hitters in the top of the 9th to allow Rougned Odor to play the hero in the bottom of the 9th.

Evan Grant writes that the walk-off win proves that youth must be served when it comes to the Rangers lineup these days.

Among Ryan Posner's notes is one on Jurickson Profar potentially getting looks at first base in anticipation of finding ways to keep him in the lineup.

Over at the DMN the Ballsy Podcast folks welcomed Michael Young to talk about joining the Texas Rangers Hall of Fame and Profar's place.

Folks are beginning to notice that the Rangers are winning as ESPN's Mark Simon looks at the young players contributing to the team with the best record in baseball since May 20.

Jeff Sullivan has a piece wondering how the Rangers are doing this without many of the players they were supposed to be counting on this season.

Jared Sandler ponders what to do about the Prince Fielder dilemma in his collection of Rangers thoughts this week.

Posner previews tonight's skirmish of southpaws as Cole Hamels pitches for Texas against Dallas Keuchel of Houston.

Finally, Sullivan pens a guide to the MLB Draft for Texas Rangers fans. The draft begins on Thursday and the Rangers will make their first selection with the 30th overall pick.

Have a nice day!
