Good morning.

Levi Weaver recaps the Rangers’ 7-6 victory over the New York Yankees yesterday to vault the team back over .500.

Jeff Wilson reacts to the win over New York and Drew Robinson’s big day at Yankee Stadium.

T.R. Sullivan writes that Matt Bush came in and closed the door on the Yankees’ rally and saved a game that was once 7-0 in the middle innings.

Evan Grant writes that Bush as seen worse than a blown save in his life so bouncing back on Sunday shouldn’t be too much of a surprise.

Sullivan writes about Robinson getting the first career hit, RBI, home run, double, and run scored of his career yesterday.

Grant notes that the Rangers appear ready to concede that Connor Sadzeck is a reliever and have moved him to the ‘pen.

Sullivan previews tonight’s series opener from Cleveland where Cole Hamels makes his return to the rotation opposite Carlos Carrasco of the Indians.

Wilson writes that with a series win in their pocket and Hamels rested, rehabbed, and ready, the Rangers are hoping for a big road trip.

Sullivan tells the tale of the time Pudge Rodriguez was nearly a New York Yankee now 20 years ago.

And, lastly, take heed from this Nationals fan and perhaps skip the ninth inning of Rangers games if you’ve got a weak ticker.

Have a nice day!
