Good morning, folks...

The Rangers beat the Astros, 6-4, yesterday.

Levi Weaver has his game story from yesterday’s win.

Jeff Wilson has his “Rangers Reaction” from the victory.

Gerry Fraley has his “Instant Replay,” and says Cole Hamels is tougher than his “Hollywood” nickname suggests.

T.R. Sullivan writes about Alex Claudio getting in trouble in the ninth, but still picking up the save, striking out Jose Altuve looking for the final out.

Cole Hamels was hit on the knee by a ball yesterday, but stuck it out and pitched seven scoreless innings.

Pudge Rodriguez will have his jersey retired before today’s game. There will be quite a few big names on hand for the ceremony.

Tyson Ross, tonight’s starter, will have about 10 more starts the rest of the season to show what he can do next year.

Jeff Wilson writes about Joey Gallo, and how he would have been sent back to AAA a week into the season had Adrian Beltre not re-aggravated his strained calf the day before he was to be activated.

Tony Barnette got a haircut.

Levi has his Baseball Texas Daily notes, which includes grades for all the players’ nicknames for “Players Weekend.”
