Celebrating Pudge Rodriguez and Adrian Beltre immortality since July 30, 2017

Good morning.

Levi Weaver recaps the Rangers' 4-2 win over the Angels which dropped Anaheim another game back of the Twins in the Wild Card race.

T.R. Sullivan notes that it was Jake Diekman who was given the opportunity to pick up the save and he came through with his first save since his return.

Evan Grant writes that Diekman not only got the save, he got five outs in just ten pitches.

Sullivan notes that until the Rangers are eliminated, Jeff Banister will be giving Adrian Beltre and Nomar Mazara chances to keep fighting.

Grant writes that Beltre is doing what he's always done: Fearlessly adapting to his situation until he thrives.

Stefan Stevenson writes that the Rangers have already been eliminated by his estimation because Texas needed a sweep of Anaheim this weekend but only managed to win one.

Grant's notebook covers Mazara's pursuit of 100 RBIs and rotation news for Nick Martinez and Yohander Mendez.

And, lastly:

Have a nice day!
