Good morning, folks...

The Rangers beat the A’s yesterday, 5-0, thanks to great work by Elvis Andrus and Yu Darvish.

The Rangers website game story talks about the club moving one step closer to clinching home field advantage.

Evan Grant has his “Three Takeaways” from last night’s game, and says Elvis celebrated the division title in yesterday’s game instead of the night before like so many of his teammates.

Evan says the Rangers’ priorities now are clinching home field advantage and getting the pitching staff healthy and set up for the playoffs.

The S-T looks at how the Rangers won each of their seven division titles.

Texas is evaluating the progress of Shin-Soo Choo, Tony Barnette and Jeremy Jeffress, as they work to determine whether those players will be options in the postseason.

Derek Holland is being considered as a bullpen option for the Rangers in the playoffs.

The DMN ranks the difficulty of each of the Rangers’ potential playoff opponents.

The S-T’s notes talk about Darvish, Cole Hamels, and ginger ale celebrations.
